At 8:00 pm, the water will be cleared to get everyone off the water before dark. No tubes will be available to rent. To enter the water and/or tube all children must be 30” or taller. All children 12 years and younger are required to wear a life jacket while in the water. Life jackets are free of charge and are generously provided by Cabela’s and TRWD. Supplies are limited so we encourage patrons to bring their own.

Are coolers allowed?

No. For the safety of our patrons, we do not allow coolers in the festival grounds. Also, no outside food or beverages. Exceptions are infant and child nourishment and one unopened bottled water per person.

Are there limits on bag sizes/types?

We don't limit the size of bags that can be brought to the festival. However, all bags and backpacks are subject to search by law enforcement.

Yes. All tents must be taken down by 8:00 pm.

Do you accept cash or card?

Both. Cash and all major credit/debit cards will be accepted to purchase food & beverages.

Are dogs allowed at the festival?

Yes, but they must remain on a leash at all times. Please also consider the noise level of fireworks before bringing your dog. Loud fireworks scare dogs and cause them to run away. Bringing a dog is highly discouraged unless you are 100% certain that you can hold on to them.
