Please note that a minimum of TWO payments is required before your costume is ordered. IF we do not receive your full payment by the final due date, your order will be cancelled and your deposit will be forfeited.
Can I get a refund if I am unable to pay in full or collect my costume or tshirt?
We do not provide refunds. We will allow costume or tshirt transfers. It is your responsibility to find the person that is willing to accept your transfer.
Can another person collect my costume or tshirt if I'm unable to do so?
Absolutely. We understand that many of our masqueraders are from out of town, therefore all you need to do is send us an email or call us with the name and phone number of the person picking up your costume or tshirt.
What shoes do I need to wear?
We ask that your shoes match your section colors if you are in a costume. If you are in the tshirt section, please wear black or white shoes.
Can a relative/friend play mas with me if they are not a registered masquerader?
Unfortunately, we only allow "paying masqueraders with an official ULTRA mas wristband" to play mas with us. Non-masqueraders may observe from the sidelines, however they will not be able to participate.
Absolutely, NO KIDS are allowed in the band.

On carnival day, ULTRA mas meets at 10am sharp at 1 E Edenton St, Raleigh, NC 27601.

We strongly recommend that you eat a hearty breakfast before you arrive at the starting point. However, as part of your all inclusive package, we will serve lunch AFTER the parade.
