This is a family friendly event and as such there are procedures regarding dress code. These apply to regular clothing as well as costumes. Denton Public Library staff will have the final say on determining whether or not your costume is appropriate. If your costume is deemed inappropriate, you will be asked to change. Failure to comply will result in you being asked to leave the property of the North Branch Library.
No costume should be larger than 6’6” tall or 2’10” wide. You must be able to fit through the doors for safety reasons.
Your costume must be at least the equivalent of shorts and a sleeveless T-Shirt (men and women). If you have a skirt or kilt you must be able to bend over without your undergarments showing. All attendees must wear shoes.
Your costume may not contain any inappropriate images.
Props and weapons:
Prop weapons may be carried during the event. These are homemade or commercially rendered costume props that support the look of a costume or character. All weapons or other props will be checked when you enter to determine if they are safe.
Any weapon/props that are determined to be unsafe will not be allowed. You can either take them home or we will hold them for you in the staff area for the remainder of the day. You will receive a ticket to pick up your item when you are ready to leave.
No real weapons are allowed. Realistic/toy guns will be allowed as long as they are clearly marked with orange on the barrel.
Due to potential damage to property, filled water guns, bubble guns, silly string and the like are prohibited.
If you have any questions about the dress code please contact the North Branch assistant manager, Wylaina Polk at 940-349-8774
