THE issue of how teenagers should conduct themselves in Grafton on Jacaranda Thursday polarised our Facebook friends on both The Daily Examiner and Grafton pages last night.

By lunchtime today there were 107 comments between the two sites with calls varying from a complete ban on any form of teenage shenanigans to a designated areas for water fights to the simple request of letting kids be kids.

Below, we've mocked up a potential Jacaranda Thursday etiquette guide for teenagers partaking in what has become a tradition.

Please cast your vote and we will run the list in Thursday's DEX in the order of votes received.
