A few key things to know before you arrive:

• If you're using a boombox: We’ll have a few Unsilent Night CDs available for guests to play on their own boomboxes as well as a few boomboxes already loaded with CDs available for guests to use during the parade.
• If you’re using an mp3 player: Each of the four Unsilent Night tracks are available here: http://unsilentnight.com/participate.html for free download under “Download a Sound File”. You are welcome to pick any one of the tracks you’d like to play that night. If you are coming in a group, we encourage you to download different tracks. If you plan on using an mp3 player, please bring a set of speakers – the louder the better!
