ARRIVAL

Gates open at 5:30pm, for parking, food trucks and live entertainment.

VEHICLES

For safety, external chairs are discouraged except for those that can fit within the space allocated to your vehicle, without blocking fire lanes. Blankets are always encouraged.

Tall vehicles such as SUVs, pickups or those with open hatchbacks will be directed to the 'end-caps' of each row. Taller vehicles can also enjoy a good view from rear rows. Our goal is to ensure unobstructed views for everyone.

Always remain on high alert for moving vehicles when traversing the parking area.
