Street parking and paid parking lots available near the venue. Bring cash and plan on spending between $3-5 for the evening.

Eating:
Be advised that no coolers, alcohol, glass containers and Camelbacks are allowed at the event. Water will be available.
Food vendors will be there selling food and nonalcoholic drinks.
Surrounding restaurants, like the Tin Angel Café, and Tony Coputo Market and Deli are some good local options outside of the park.

Twilight Market:
Take some time to check out the vendors. Some really great artists show up beneath the tent booths. Often their stuff is more expensive than a department store’s, but you’ll get handmade quality and some originality in your purchase. They need your local support, too.
Market opens at 5 p.m. each Thursday evening.
