I was in my room at that time, so I got some nice "from above" dragon perspective :)

(same happened to Tioh when we were breathing fire, so he has some nice shoots from that *happy*)

What is going to happen if it is raining outside at the time? will the parade be a much shorter version just inside or will in be cancelled. Many suits have delicate feet and getting them wet can ruin them. Last year, the floor was still wet and I didn't have my sandals on, so my feet were black for the rest of the con and have never come clean.

cancelling is not an option.
depending on the forecast, it'll either be delayed or short and indoor.

Everyone is of course free to decide to not follow the parade outside, and just stay inside... all alone ;-P

:)

A short indoor parade could also work because it would start, head downstairs, around the zoo and the dealers den etc.. then pose for photo then back upstairs. Lets hope its dry next week though :)

Is the parade starting where it did last year in the stage hall where the fursuit lounge was? Or will it be starting where the fursuit lounge is this year behind the lifts and emerging into the main area from there?

Is the route of the fursuit parade compatible with pony hoofes?

Ist die Wegstrecke für die Fursuit-Parade kompatibel mit Pony-Hufen (mit oder ohne Hufeisen)?

Treppen sind kein so großes Problem, harter unebener Boden (z.B. Kopfsteinpflaster) dagegen sehr.

You might want to ask Horsie for that. Anyways, I at least didn't have problems last year, but my hooves aren't digitigrade  (they do have a wooden sole though). Well, to put it into a nutshell, I don't remember any problematic surfaces.

Misu's paws should be okay of water, but not soaked, just a little rain.

The name 'leopard' may derive from an old notion that leopards were the result of crosses between lions (leo) and panthers (pard).

The only suggestion I would make is when leading down into the BBQ area, any chance that a path of some kind could be cleared in the actual seating area?  The chairs and tables I noticed were stackable/collapsable kind and it might be an idea to clear a route.  Last year they remained, adding a bit of kaos to the suiters trying to walk around and avoid bumping into things.

No, we don't have a contract with the weather gods.
If it's going to be raining, it is raining
If you feel your suit will decompose under the influence of water, stay inside, when the rest of the parade moves out.

No, we have no intention to buy 3 parallel new pavements around the hotel to have a compatble version for every single version of paws.
I'm pretty sure everyone has the chance to walk around the hotel once, to consider if he will survive the concrete lane.

No, we will not be clearing the lower lobby for the parade beacuse it is the intention to have the suiters down there among the dealers and artists, who otherwise would miss the parade.

Ah, the terrasse. That again is a valid point. Will have to see if the Hotel is willing to remove them.
