Tickets - Free - I will give you the ticket at the Tailgate Party. YOU MUST BE AT TAILGATE PARTY BY 6PM to get a ticket.
Tailgate Party starts at 4:15.
Bring a chair or blanket to sit on. Dress is very casual. You will take the chair into the stadium, and sit in it. We will be in grassy area, not in the stands. Food, drinks, and water CANNOT be taken into stadium. But will be on sale in stadium.
Bring food and drink for a tailgate party - anything simple, and whatever you want to bring. (We won't be cooking anything.)
Include in your RSVP what you will bring so we can co-ordinate. If you're not sure now, just update it later.
Parking: Free - Parking Lot 1&3
Parking lot opens at 4pm.
Enter thru Parking Lot 1 off of Martin Luther King Blvd.
Park : where parking attendant directs you, OR if you see a set of trees near the blue pedestrian bridge towards the right, we will be there - park there if you can.
To find us:
After you park, face the stadium, look to your right, and probably a little behind you. You should be able to see the blue pedestrian bridge that crosses over Dale Mabry to George Steinbrenner Field. There is a set of 3 large trees very near the stairs to the bridge. We will be there with a large white Y with a heart on it. Bring over your chair or blanket and food. I will have your ticket. Ticket is free, but required.
4:15p - 6:00p - Tailgate party under the 3 large trees.
6:00p - Go thru security, into stadium with chair or blanket.
** No outside food or drink, not even water. This is the same as going into a football game. Security check of all bags, etc. will be done.
**Food and drinks will be available at 1/2 normal price inside stadium.
(see list below)
Inside Stadium - I'll bring a large tarp to stake out our area. We'll sit close to the front, on the right hand side of the stage, in the grass. The right hand side gets shade quickest. We may be in the sun for a short while. If needed, there are places you can go to get out of the sun, and for fun, you can explore the Buccaneer Pirate Ship.
6:00p - Local School Orchestra/Band
7:30p - Florida Orchestra
