Wear your diving clothes under the clothes you wear to the event; then you don’t have to change into it just to change right back out of it!
Wear river shoes. Certain places are slippery.
Just be creative. A costume is not required. Some people like acting a little crazy and that's ok at Dinosaur Valley State Park! Remember that you’ll jump into the water in your costume, so make sure you can safely swim in it.
The Blue hole slopes off from ankle deep to up to 20 ft deep in certain areas. One side has a nice sloping beach type area and other sides have steep drop offs.
