Can I bring a cooler? Sorry, but NO outside food or drinks allowed.

Can I bring my pet? NO – Service animals ONLY. This is a FOOD event and the risk for accidental bites from dropped food are the reason for this ruling. Yes, we love pets but we hate the possibility of someone getting their fingers mistaken for a snack. For this reason, we ask that no pets be brought to the event.
Service animals are the ONLY exception.

Can I bring my lawn chairs/blankets? YES, the facility has very limited seating so we encourage you to bring your own blanket or a lawn/folding chair and enjoy the day with us.
