Check out our review from a previous season and tips for enjoying the evening.

There is no seating at the venue; bring your own blanket or low-backed lawn chair. It can get pretty chilly in the evenings so you'll want a jacket. Concessions are available for purchase or you can bring your own picnic.

Parking is free and plentiful, but can be a little confusing. Check the website for directions.
