Poorly coordinated! We purchased tickets to the "VIP Tent" that allegedly included a bucket of 4 beers per ticket, a mask, and expedited service. Of the five vendors that actually arrived (late), there was no VIP tent to be found. There was no information tent. There were no helpful staff on standby to direct or address questions. Thankfully, our beers were honored, but no buckets were available and we had to keep walking back to the beer truck. There was no Carnival parade. The large amphitheater was used for a sound system with no live performances or bands. The entire event was poorly coordinated and anti-climactic. Furthermore, we purchased these tickets in January, so there's no doubt that there was adequate time for proper planning. We will not waste our money or our time on this event in the future.
Need to market the event better. Don't charge people to attend the event unless you are renting the site or having performances or a true carnival display parade.
Have a true VIP area and only charge for that.
Food and music in the VIP area were amazing
