Do not forget your cooler: The whole idea of Cooler Fetes is that you bring your own cooler. Make sure you have a good cooler that will keep your drinks cold all night.

Bring your friends: Cooler Fetes are much more fun when you're with a group of friends. Invite your crew to come along and party with you.

Pace yourself: Cooler Fetes can go on all night, so pace yourself when it comes to drinking. Always drink responsibly!
Wear comfortable shoes: Dancing all night can be tough on your feet, so wear comfortable shoes that you can dance in.
Stay hydrated: With all the dancing and drinking, it's important to stay hydrated. Bring plenty of water or sports drinks to keep yourself hydrated throughout the night.
Live in love: One thing about Crop Over atmosphere is that its a celebration of culture rooted in love. Be respectful of the people around you.
