D.O.R.A. RULES

1. FOLLOW THE LAW. State law allows for the establishment of the outdoor refreshment area, but other state laws regarding consumption of alcoholic beverages (including the legal drinking age, etc.), traffic and pedestrian walkways must still be followed. Enjoy in moderation and under no circumstances should participants drink and drive.

2. STAY WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES. The Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area can only be enjoyed within the boundaries, which are marked by posted signs. Please do not take alcoholic beverages outside the boundaries, as you could be cited.

3. YOU CAN ONLY "SIP AND STROLL" DURING SPECIFIED HOURS. The hours for this event are posted and must be observed.

4. DRINKS MUST BE PURCHASED FROM PARTICIPATING BUSINESSES ONLY. No cans, no glass, and no alcoholic beverages purchased outside the boundaries are permitted.

5. ANY ALCOHOLIC DRINK TAKEN IN A TO-GO CUP, MUST BE IN AN APPROVED AND READILY IDENTIFIED CONTAINER. Each participating bar or establishment will have a specific color cup or container for their alcohol.

6. YOU CAN'T TAKE A CUP FROM ONE BAR/ESTABLISHMENT INTO ANOTHER PARTICIPATING BAR/ESTABLISHMENT. That’s not allowed under state law, so please responsibly enjoy your drink before entering another participating venue.

7. DON'T TRASH A GOOD TIME. Dispose of your empties and trash in one of the many waste receptacles downtown during the event.

8. EACH BUSINESS THAT DOES NOT SELL ALCOHOL HAS THE RIGHT TO DECIDE IF THEY WILL ALLOW PATRONS TO BRING IN DORA DRINKS. Please be respectful of the businesses.

9. KNOW YOUR LIMITS. The key to enjoying our outdoor refreshment area is drinking responsibly and having a designated driver to help you get home safely.
