Parking is free for the event in the main parking lot off Southwood Drive. The front parking lot off Salisbury Street will be used by the food vendors.

Patrons are welcome and encouraged to take lawn chairs and seating to watch the bands on the Civic Green, but large umbrellas and pop-up tents are discouraged. No alcohol is permitted on park property, and pets are discouraged.

The park and main building, including the gymnasiums and Splashpad, will be open for use by the public. Pre-registration is required to use the Splashpad during the weekend.
