HOW: Click here for park RULES VENDORS: Please contact me about the fees for 2010 as park rules have changed.
HOW MUCH: This year's charge to cover the large event permitting fees will be $2 for adults and children are free, please click the permitting fees link if you have any questions about the park charge. I would like everyone to send their money in before getting on the list for several reasons; the park requires an accurate head count in order to assess the proper fees and the deposit is not refundable, so this will help spread the risk of a bad weather cancellation. This will also minimize the need for people to stand in line to pay the fee instead of enjoying the event. Check or money order can be sent to;
