When I was at boarding school, some of the students would just disappear on Bong Bong Races Day and would turn up late in the day very much worse for wear and then end up on 'detention' after being sprung by teachers who attended the races.
The ridiculous dress-ups were more in the line of boys wearing dresses or caps with beer-cans attached - that sort of thing.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
