The greeters are the face of the event and are the newcomer’s first impression of Xanadu (our city within Florida En Fuego). It is most important, that everyone is welcomed home with love and joy. You are the first impression when they arrive to Xanadu after a long day of driving and packing. Our mission is to orient and educate arriving citizens while spreading wit, whimsy and infectious enthusiasm to carloads of people. Greeters explain the “Don’t let it hit the ground!” principle, clarify the concept of Community, and answer all questions in an offbeat yet helpful (or endearingly hostile) ways. Enlightening new and returning participants alike is a vital role.
Our priority is to ensure that each and every citizen of Xanadu gets in safely and with the proper credentials (i.e., ticket in hand, signed waiver and wrist bands). We search vehicles, looking for stowaways, potential MOOP-makers (Matter Out Of Place), firearms, fireworks and dogs. As well as, making sure all Mutant Vehicles entering the city are pre-registered with the DMV. We unite artists with art placement and theme camp with their respective placement. Also, help on the guidance of proper parking. All this while making sure the traffic on the highway doesn’t back up.
