If you plan on attending the parade on Sunday, I highly recommend that you leave all your documents and credit cards at home or at your hotel, and that you only take cash with you and keep it inside your underwear or socks. If you plan on taking your cell phone or a camera, I suggest not keeping it in your pocket.
