The Limestone Coast Festival & Events team have worked closely with the Mount Gambier branch of SAPOL to develop this weapons policy to ensure the safety of festival attendees. All costumed patrons will be checked on entry by security and must adhere to the following:
All metal and sharp-ended swords must be fixed, attached or secured to a belt, side or outfit by a cable tie, sheath, or holster. This is to ensure the safety of everyone at the event.
PLEASE PEACE BOND OR SECURE YOUR SWORD OR WEAPON BEFORE ENTRY
- Including metal Swords
- Arrows in a quiver (if sharp)
- Wooden swords with sharp points
- Any weapon that our security deems to be dangerous
Any weapons unsheathed and presented to other patrons in a threatening manner by anyone other than our hired entertainers would constitute ‘carry offensive weapon’ and may be liable to prosecution by SAPOL.
Only persons engaged to perform in an official paid capacity by Limestone Coast Festivals & Events Inc is exempt from this policy within the bounds of their performance space.
