Parking is varied in cost. Venue parking was full. Were able to park about 3 blocks away for $5.
Not a great variety of food but it is available. Lines were very long. There are restaurants close but but the ones closest are pretty expensive.
Pay attention to the schedules!! They have almost everything listed so if you pay attention to the various schedules you can maximize your time interacting with your favorite people.
Printed ticket entry is far quicker than will-call tickets.
There were got dog stands just outside and many nearby restaurants in a wide variety of genres (from Italian to Carribean, Hawaiian to Japanese, Indian to Thai), but many were expensive.
The weather was Sunny and warm, 70 degrees in the morning-75 degrees midday. I wore A Pebbles Flinstone costume and my bf wore Bam Bam Rubble.... we were very comfortable w the weather..
They had lots of free samples and a food stand but not much variety
