–> What to Bring: Arrive early go get a good spot. The Long Center lawn provides plenty of room to play around with the kids before everything starts to help them from getting antsy.

Parents, we totally understand that you might not want to keep the kids up late, but it’s certainly cool to come, picnic, enjoy the food trucks, the sights of the city, listen to some awesome local music and duck out early. Whatever works for your family.
