No outside food or beverages may be brought in to any of the events.
Is there parking?
For those who drive to the event, parking is available in nearby garages or on the adjacent streets where there are parking meters. Paid, on-street parking ends at 7:00 p.m., so bring enough quarters to feed the meters until then. Cars parked by expired meters or not displaying a paid parking receipt on the dashboard will be ticketed.
Are pets allowed?
Pets are allowed in the square during the concerts, provided they are on a leash no longer than six feet at all times. If they display aggressive behavior the owner may be asked to remove them.
