In accordance with current city and state protocols vaccination status is not mandatory for this event.  However, we do ask that participants act in a responsible manner and do not attend if feeling ill, showing symptoms or have been recently exposed.  Mask wearing is optional unless the venue or city has mandated that.  Everyone should respect the comfort levels of others as we transition into this next phase of socializing in the Covid era.
This event is nonrefundable.  If you have tested positive for Covid and cannot attend, we will do our best to provide you with credits to select future events with a copy of your positive test results. Please note that due to the cost involved in some activities credits may not be used for the event you missed.

Can I come alone?  Yes. 98% of those attending will likely register on their own, but you are invited to bring as many guests as you would like–just be sure to register for that amount.

Dress Code:  Most people come from work so business casual.  Dress for the weather.  You will be sitting on blankets.

How long does it last?  The performance usually goes until 10:30pm with fireworks afterwards.
