About Admission:
The event will have a limited amount of space so they have to issue tickets to control how many people go into the park. Tickets have been given to local shops and companies, hit up your contacts to see if anyone has some extras. We gave away tickets for the past two weeks, congratulations to everyone who won! Didn’t win a ticket… can’t find tickets anywhere… stop by the event and try your luck!
