    I am meeting a friend at the box office at 6. I understand the meeting is at 530 but hopefully we'll still be able to find you. Are we allowed to bring wine?

    • Diane

      Not sure if wine is allowed. You will have to ask at the park.

      Meet at the front entrance where the ticket booth is. Look for a large group standing together. Before going (or on your smartphone) look at the pictures of us and you should be able to find us. It shouldn't be hard. Also you can post in the comments here if you can't find us and we can then look for you.

    I will probably end up going on my own. I know you'll all love this.
