Words of advice when it comes to catching all that bling. Don't beg! Begging is so unattractive. Be sure to say, "Throw me something, Mister!". Be safe. Don't bend over to pick up a doubloon or strand of beads, you could be seriously hurt! Instead...place your foot down or stomp on the doubloon or bead. Once the float passes and things calm down, you can safely reach under your foot to retrieve.
