Frequently Asked Questions
Why do we sell wristbands?
There are a few reasons. This helps to identify who is 21 years and older. This also helps pay for the event. The money helps to fund next year's event, and is rolled over to each following year. Your contribution helps make this event possible.
Where do we park?
