If it’s your first time, the etiquette of Halloween Skate is:

  1. You skate at your own risk.
  2. You must be able to stop turn and control your speed on an incline.
  3. Listen to the marshal’s instructions – please follow them, we’re volunteers.
  4. Stay behind the Lead Marshal (orange vest)
  5. Stay in front of the Rear marshal (also orange vest).
  6. Keep left for marshals (yellow vests) overtaking you on your right.
  7. Keep off the pavements.
  8. And remember to scare the public*.

If you can’t keep up with the Rear Marshal you may politely be asked to drop off. If this happens don’t be embarrassed or upset, just make your way to the party and get ready to show off your costume on the dance floor.
