There will be several tutorials posted on our site to show you which items go where and how to put them on.
- What comes with my costume purchase?
Your complete costume as you stated on your account, breakfast ticket, lunch ticket, drinks ticket, souvenir cup, souvenir bag, other promotional items, goodies and snacks.
- How long is the parade route?
The parade route is best described in time. Madd Colors has been designated by the committee to be the last band on the road this year. The committee feels that some due to the large size of our band there are smaller bands competing that may not get to cross the stage in time. With that decision being made Madd Colors will not be competing this year. What does this mean for you? MORE TIME on the road. It takes approximately 5-6 hours based on past history of all bands completing the route. It’s HOT in Atl, you will appreciate when it ends. 😊
- What if my costume doesn’t fit?
Costumes are custom made. The material used aside from the wire bras are adjustable. We recommend you put your exact size as the costume fits as close to your size as possible.
- Where does the band meet?
In your costume package you will receive and full distribution information sheet with meeting time, location, housekeeping rules as well as other pertinent information.
