      There will be a lot of people here Francois but it’s not uncomfortable as we have a lot of room! It depends, if you want to find a good spot, the earlier the better. BUT if you want to see the fireworks and can’t stay all day, then you’d come around 3 or 4 and stay for them! Up to you!

    If purchasing the 10 pack group ticket for Saturday . Does the whole group of ten have to show up at the same time? For example if a few people got there earlier to get a fire pit does your whole group have to be in attendance? Also, will there be food trucks that offer gluten free options?

    Reply Brie 18 October 2017, 13:12

      You do NOT have to arrive at the same time! Your party will need the ticket buyer’s name! Many trucks offer gluten-free items but it’s best to check with them directly as we don’t have their menus beforehand!

    Hi all,

    Question regarding the tickets. If you purchase a 10 pack group ticket do all people have to arrive at the same time? For example if some wanted to get there earlier to tab a fire pit prior to the whole group showing up… would that be possible? Also are you able to grab a fire pit if you entire group is not in attendance at the time you arrive?

    Lastly , will some food trucks in attendance have gluten free options?

    Reply Brie 18 October 2017, 13:15
