Prepping for Bridge Day: What to Bring and What to Leave Behind

Some quick tidbits that will make your Bridge Day preparation that much easier.

Leave ‘Em Home if You’ve Got ‘Em

  • No Pets. We  love the furry creatures but the site of 6 foot tall pig-rabbits tends to put them on edge. Service animals are of course allowed.
  • No Backpacks or Purses big enough to place your pet in. The good thing about Bridge Day is you can pack light.  Everything from food to drinks to souvenirs is available right on the bridge or in downtown Fayetteville.
  • No coolers, no booze. Bridge Day is the single largest extreme adventure sporting event and we all know that that type of adrenaline is enough.
  • No wagons, no boards, no bikes.

5 Bridge Day Essentials

There are some things you can bring along that are sure to make your day more enjoyable.

  • Walking Shoes. The thing about a 3,030-feet long bridge festival is that you’ll want to walk it a few times to see everything.  Think comfort.
  • Hand Sanitizer. So you know there’s no running water on the bridge –right?  While all our portables have some hand sanitation, I always like to be prepared and plan on bringing some of my own.
  • Cash. If you’re like us, you don’t normally carry cash and are dependent on the handy debit card.  There are some ATMs in Fayetteville, however there are none next to the Bridge. Skip the ATM  lines and come prepared with cash.
  • Your Camera. BASE jumping, rappelling, zipping.  It’s action-packed, colorful and just screams for picture taking. Be sure to tag your photos with #bridgeday and share them with us on Facebook and Flickr.
  • Appetite. Typical Bridge Day favorites include bbq, fajitas, and funnel cake.  Yum. But six hours isn’t a lot of time to take in all of it, if you’re not really hungry.  So come prepared.

See you on the bridge.
