Rain or shine, it’s party time,
So in the event of bad weather, we’ll huddle together.
No need for concern, you’ll soon learn,
That the party can’t stop under the Big Top!

And although we do not require,
It is in our heart’s desire,
For all our ticket buyers
To wear circus attire!

Dazzle and delight
As we party into the night.
Go wild in your sequin dress,
The circus knows no excess!

But if you know a thing or two,
Know that parking doesn’t always come through.
Take a taxi, Uber, or Lyft-
There’s no need to get miffed!
It’s a party, support your parks, come clown around!
Just arrange a ride to get home safe and sound.

If you prefer to be your own chauffeur,
Here’s a list of places you might find parking spaces.
Just remember Ashley Ave will be closed,
So don’t park there, you will be towed.
