Rain or shine concert 


For your comfort, lounge chairs will be allowed into the park, one chair per person. For your safety, every chair will be subjected to a thorough search. Please be advised that security regulations mandate that we must search all chairs. We must open, close and safety check the chairs before you enter. This could potentially delay your entry to the park significantly (tested wait time=approx. 45 minutes). Please consider your options before electing to bring a chair.
