Since this is an outdoor event, you may encounter guests not wearing masks even though we strongly encourage them. All staff and volunteers will be wearing masks and they are required for guests indoors.

At the entrance, you may need to wait in order to social distance. Since most guests arrive at the opening time, to avoid waiting in line, plan to arrive at 6 or later.
