NOTE: While the use of tripods and other camera equipment is allowed during the Pixel Party, please be aware of and courteous to those around you and consider the limited time frame of the Pixel Party when setting up — we want to make sure everyone has a chance to take pictures of everything they would like to shoot. Additionally, no flash photography will be permitted during the Pixel Party. Thank you!
