Know before you go

Attendees should be aware that it will be hot. Organizers want them to be prepared.

Coolers are not allowed, but water will be available free of charge.

“Make sure you drink plenty of fluids. We have water on site that you can drink for free,” said Susan Christian, director of the Mayor’s Office of Special Events. “Please do not bring your igloos or any food, unless it is for special needs or infants.”

Attendees are welcome to bring blankets, lawn chairs and umbrellas.
