“When laughter breaks out the clown isn’t far away. When laughter dies down the clown goes away. Where is my clown? It is born in laughter, lives near laughter and dies beside laughter.”

-Philippe Gaulier

Wear clothes easy to move around in and layers as we will be alternately moving and sitting. Water and snacks are both good ideas.
