As long as you are using it in context, and not threatening anyone or acting unstable or obviously on drugs, there shouldn't be a problem. We had 4 dress sabers for our wedding honor guard last year and walked down the streets in a parade with our swords drawn in a salute for some distance with no issues (right past some BLM Rangers). Of course, we were in dress uniforms and had a marching band along...with a flame throwing green penis carrying the wedding party!

Possibly Ren Faires and Sci-Fi conventions had it first, but 'tis neither hither nor thither.
