General Info

Parking is not included with your ticket purchase; an event ticket is required to use the parking lot. Parking costs $10 per car and $20 per bus. Parking along Stadium Dr and W Commerce Dr will not be permitted during this event.

Gates for this event will open at 6:00 PM each night and the show will start at dusk, which is predicted to be at 8:30 PM. We highly recommend that you aim to be in the stadium at least one hour prior to the start of the show at the latest to avoid being stuck at the gate when the fireworks displays commence. 

Food and beverages will be available throughout the concourse. If you are seated at a high-top table, table service will be provided. Click here for the Turtle Creek Stadium concessions map.

Access to the spectator voting portal will be available via QR codes placed on signage throughout the concourse and on the event programs that will be handed out at the gate. Voting will open after the final show each night.
