Eat before you come. Unless you come hrs. before with a picnic meal. Lines are long and food is expensive.

Whether you decide to sit on the lawn or splurge for a table, most definitely bring a picnic of your favorite foods, spirits and desserts. There are also food trucks at the venue that offer up some pretty tasty selections

if you park at Santa Anita mall it's free, but you do have to walk to the venue. If you chose to park up the hill next to Santa Anita, there parking is $10.00 but you also get to take the shuttle. There is also parking in the lot at the arboretum, but you have to reserve and I'm not sure of the cost

The weather was Sunny and cool on the summer evening I attend. Bring an umbrella, which you can use until 7pm, and bring a medium thick sweater or jacket for the evenings. . I wore A strapless maxi dress and brought a hoody, but a large shawl would have been better and my feet got cold, as I was wearing flip flops. .

Outside parking lots are difficult to find and lines for the shuttles on after the performance are impossibly long. Parking at the Hollywood Bowl, 5 times its size, is better organized and faster.

The weather was Very cold. I believe it was low 40s. Bring a winter coat, gloves, scarves, knit cap. Possibly even wear some thermal pants because being outside for a while, your body temperature lowers and you can feel really cold . I wore Jeans, beanie, gloves, hoodie, jacket and scarf. Even with all that, I still felt cold after being outside for 3 hours.

The weather was cold.. I wore beanie, scarf, layers, jeans, and boots. And add glow neckwear to your kids to make them easy to find especially if you go in a big group. .

Limited food variety and lines are long, so best to eat before you go.

Some paved areas, dirt and grass. All walking so if you are with someone that cannot walk for over 2 hours bring a wheel chair. Parking with the free shuttle is great because it drops u off at the entrance and we had no wait.
