- Bring fido on a leash.
- Bring a picnic blanket or lawn chairs if you wish to enjoy the live music.
- You can bring a small cooler or picnic basket of food, but we’re going to have lots of food trucks selling delicious food, beer, icecream and much more
- Please note that smoking is not permitted in the park.
- Drones or other aerial devices are not permitted at the festival– we know this is a great area to fly, but drones and crowds aren’t a good combination. We’ll have plenty of entertainment to keep you busy!
