Designate a Driver.
All CDC and State of Texas guidelines will be followed, and we are working closely with Bexar County and the City of San Antonio to ensure this event meets or exceeds all recommended standards. We will leave at least every other parking space empty to ensure sufficient distance between you and surrounding vehicles. We ask that all guests remain in their vehicles or designated areas for the duration of the performance. In the event it is necessary for a fan to leave their vehicle, safe social distancing will be strictly enforced. Failure to follow safe social distancing, or requests of staff members for participants to follow, will cause the participant to be subject to ejection. Event staff will be wearing personal protective equipment as required by CDC guidelines.
