What to Bring
This event is an outdoor, rain or shine event, so a little preparation can make all the difference in your personal comfort and enjoying the weekend.
â–¡ Suitable clothing for every possible weather condition. The rule at Carlisle is that the clothing you do not pack will be exactly what you will need, as weather can vary drastically this time of year. Think in terms of layering light clothes and you should be fine. It is not unusual to see 40 degree temperature swings. Carlisle is one of those places on Earth where you can get a sunburn and hypothermia in the same weekend!
â–¡ Comfortable shoes (or an extra pair if the first ones get wet)
â–¡ Waterproof shoes/boots
â–¡ Warm jacket (just in case)
â–¡ Shorts (for those times when you donâ€™t need the jacket)
â–¡ Sweater, Sweatshirt, Hoodie (or one of each)
â–¡ Rain gear, umbrella, poncho, rain slicker, rain suit (just in case)
â–¡ Comfortable folding/lawn chair. ( a small folding table is nice to have, too)
