Cash Is King
To make the most of your food truck feast, make sure to have cash on hand. While some vendors may accept cards, CashApp, or Venmo, it’s best to be prepared. If you forget to bring cash, don’t worry! There are several ATMs within walking distance, with the closest one being The Heritage Bank. Additionally, the beer garden accepts CashApp and Venmo as payment methods.
Beer Garden for Adults
For those aged 21 or older, there’s a beer garden available. Please note that outside coolers are not allowed, and you’ll need a valid photo ID to purchase beer or wine. Bottomless beer cups are available for $25. Remember, this is a 100% ID check event, so make sure to bring your ID. Each ID holder is entitled to one beverage, so if you’re bringing someone with you, ensure they have their ID as well.
Families with children will have plenty of activities to enjoy. UBOUNCE will be providing kid-friendly attractions, including bouncy houses. For a small fee, your little ones can have a blast all day long. However, please note that the bounce houses do not have monitors, so it’s important to keep an eye on your children while they play.
