How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This was a lot of fun. The screen was huge. I highly suggest arriving early to get a good spot on the lawn. I do have 1 complaint about chairs though. I think if people want to use chairs they should be limited to a back or side area. We set up a space on a blanket and behind another blanket then just before the movie began a couple went and got chairs and sat right in front of us, limiting our view and the ability to lay down while watching. Parking was also a bummer, it was expensive and limited to 2 hour increments ($6 for 2 hours) it wasn't until after we'd already re-fed the machine (now at $12) that someone announced they wouldn't give tickets as long as we paid for the first 2 hours. That information would have been much more helpful to have ahead of time or as we entered the event. Otherwise the food trucks were great, the band was really good and the movie projection was crisp and clear along with the sound.

Help others enjoy a great night out
