      Not so easy to find people in a big crowd in the darkness. I texted two organizers and got no response, for the record.

    If anyone less is out there head toward the band near the train bridge. If you are facing the water, the bridge is to our right. We are parallel to the speakers to the right.

    The show started with the American anthem ;)

  • Matt

    I'm with Omar. We are about 150 feet from the band shell. 60 feet from the 3 speakers in the center. And about 60 feet down the hill from the rainbow umbrella. Omar is carrying a very fashionable yellow umbrella. We are right next to a garbage can. (Woohoo!)

    23 ave 19 street

    Take 23 ave all the way down until you hit the park

    OK, this is taking place along Shore Blvd (along the waterfront), between the pool and Halls Gate Bridge. If you're still not sure of where to go, look at Google maps and follow 23rd Ave westward, straight into the park. You will run into a large open lawn area. There should be a stage set up at the bottom of lawn and we will be somewhere on that lawn.

    Or just meet Kristina earlier by the track and walk over together.

    Hi! It's my first time going to the Park and the attached map doesn't highlight the Park much less where in the Park the pool and Shore Blvd are. Can someone enlighten? If not, will just have to find a better map on the internet.

    Hey everyone, so music starting at 7:30 p.m. After the music is a spectacular Grucci fireworks show. I think it would be best if we all meet at the track and then find a place to sit at 7. Please be on time! I suspect there will be alot of people there so we want to find a nice spot. If anyone wants to head there earlier and scope out, let me know. It takes place between Shore Blvd and the pool. We have a huge number (teehee) so please update your RSVP. Probably after if anyone is up for it, we'll stop by the Beer garden for a pint.

    If you need to reach me,[masked]
