Past events have been combinations of rowdy and respectable, with plenty of public drinking and shenanigans. After two years of quarantines and lockdowns fans of the celebration will likely be out in full force.  

All you need to do is find a good vantage point. Some people show up in the morning to Sunset or Kits beach to reserve a seat for the show which starts after sundown.
