When it rains, be prepared!
Last year’s UP Fair Saturday saw an unexpected rainfall in the afternoon which caused the Sunken Garden to become a huge mud pool the whole evening. Shoes were caked, people walked barefoot, and some lucky ones were able to grab plastics to completely cover their feet with.
Everyone’s hoping that this year’s UP Fair week stays dry and sunny, but you can’t be too complacent! So be prepared — bring appropriate shoes or sandals (your white sneakers have no place here), store some plastic bags in your purse, and bring tons of wet wipes.
Think twice about bringing a car
Although you’re not disallowed from bringing a car to the campus, it just might be too much of a hassle for you to find parking space near the UP Fair grounds. Besides, you’d be stealing spaces from professors, students and admin especially if you’re attending on a school night. Not to mention that it would be a huge inconvenience to students and joggers when they find cars of UP Fair attendees parked along the biker’s lane.
It’s completely fine if that’s your only way of getting there. Just be respectful of the UPD community.
Rides are a thrill to experience
Don’t miss out on any of the rides! Cheap thrills that they are, you’ll want to fall in line again and again throughout the night nonetheless. Oh, and there’s nothing quite like screaming a band’s song at the top of your lungs while you’re on the Octopus.
Be prepared to end up sleepless the next day
UP Fair nights end every day at the early hours of the morning, so if you have plans of finishing the concert until closing time, then stay hydrated, rest your legs, and remember: Berocca is your best friend.
