Personal coolers are also allowed, but alcohol is not permitted. If you're thinking of bringing your pets to this event...Think again! Loud noises, flashing lights and large crowds can have traumatic effects on your pets. Let's do our best to keep them safe by leaving them at home. In case of storm or the sounding of the weather warning siren, guests should seek shelter as directed by the University of Maryland Police Department.
