What should I definitely bring?

Lots of cold water! Though water will be available for purchase at the event, having an ample supply of water will help ensure that you stay hydrated. Also, it's suggested that you bring shade! Personal shade devices are allowed and encouraged, however, at sunset all standing shade devices must be lowered and safely put away.

Yes. You also can bring backpacks, bags and other carry-ins. Alcoholic beverages and glass containers are prohibited.  All carry-in items are subject to search by event security.


What items can I NOT bring?​

Items you cannot bring include drones, alcohol, fold-out tables, personal fireworks, barbecue grills, glass bottles, contraband, pets (service animals are permitted), laser pointers, skateboards, inline skates and kites. Due to the large crowd, fishing is prohibited during the event.

Can I bring my dog or other animal?

Only certified service animals are allowed. The combination of a large crowd and the noise from the fireworks display can create an extremely stressful environment for animals. Even the most docile animals can behave unpredictably, threatening the safety of the animal and event attendees.
