Is there Free Re-entry
We want to make sure that if you need to leave and re-enter, that you have the opportunity to do so. However, we discovered numerous bottles of wine, beer and hard alcohol in the parking lot when we picked up the day after last year’s festival, so, we will only be allowing 2 re-entries into the festival. Entry staff will mark your wristband or wrist and after 2 marks, you will not be permitted to re-enter without purchasing another ticket. We apologize for any inconvenience, however, we could be fined $10,000 for each parking lot drinking infringement that occurs.
