The tentative rain date for this performance is Sunday, August 22nd.

Hats and shades are prudent on sunny days.
Sweaters, layers and a brolly in case of weather.
PFDs (for those bringing their own boats) – gotta wear ’em.
Snacks and drinks – non-alcoholic, of course.
Something soft for your tush!
Maybe a blanket.
An open mind.
A great attitude.
