Pack Snacks

Outside food and coolers are allowed so stock up on your favorite snacks and extra water. It gets hot in the summer!

No outside alcohol is allowed but you can buy pitchers or single serve sangria and beer. Plus, the Pavilion is open for snacks, more wine, & soft drinks. 

Alcohol for Purchase
