Crüxshadows Fairy Events 2017

The only actual requirement of being a fairy street-team member is wearing wings and handing out flyers/holding a sign. IMPORTANT!!! PLEASE READ THE CXS RULES AND GUIDELINES – FLYER POLICIES HAVE CHANGED DRAMATICALLY FROM PAST YEARS!

This is a schedule of Crüxshadows related events, which may be of some interest to you, but it is completely up to you which ones you would like to attend and/or participate in.

Crüxshadows Fairies Meet and Greet
When: Thursday at 6 pm
Where: Meet at the Crüxshadows stand

The parade route is different than previous years, so please exercise caution if you plan on going to the staging area by yourself. Get hydrated before the parade. It is a bit of a walk to the staging area, but there will be a shuttle for those who prefer that option. Once at staging, we will practice the dance again!

Where: Hyatt International South
Hear what’s going on in the world of The Crüxshadows

Fairy update meeting
Sunday at 12 pm
Where: Meet at the Crüxshadows stand
This is an important meeting for all fairies. Expect updates on upcoming events. Any changes in gameplans are discussed this meeting. We will have a group discussion on any new developments and success strategies. This meeting shouldn’t last more than 30 minutes. Get pumped up, get excited, because the concert is coming up!
(If you cannot make it, please find Dash or a captain and ask for updates)

Concert!
Sunday night/Monday morning as early as possible
Where: Meet outside to the right of the rightmost door of the Hyatt Centennial Ballroom II-III. There is a black curtain that we often are able to hide behind while waiting for the show.
The concert is at 1:30 am. We will once again try to allow the fairies early priority into the Ballroom, but it is never a promise. Arrive as early as possible. If we cannot get in front, we will have to stand in line like everyone else.
