While anyone can come up with an event, it takes more than just a good idea to pull it off. Between permits, budgeting, and advertising, success can be attained with the right contacts, patience, and resources. The most important skill, however, is the ability to prevent - or, at the very least, handle - the absolute worst-case scenario. Because it can and will happen, especially if wind is a possible factor.
Even the most well-intentioned attempts at fun and whimsy can have dangerous if not fatal consequences. Some surefire things to avoid are balloons, skittish jaguars, and copious amounts of low-priced alcohol. Common sense is always helpful.
