We went early so that we could go to Picnic in the Park. It was right outside the entrance gates and had a radio station playing music, free shuffleboard and foosball games to play (but only a couple of each), food and drink available for purchase and fan / water misty areas to keep people from overheating.
It was super hot in the afternoon, but also overcast, so at least we weren't in direct sun. It was worth going early because we got such a good parking spot. And it was a great venue…everything was surprisingly very organized and orderly.
But beware, it's an outdoor stadium, and it could rain. And it did - for the second half of the show. It didn't even matter though because the concert was so good! Yay!
Thanks for reading!
