Why did they start charging? is it to cover covid protocols? Loved it when it was free on a Sunday afternoon. I hope it is not windy on event nights.

I'm not sure about the fee. Probably some nominal amount to cover record keeping and check-in costs. If 50 pods show up, that's still only $250, but don't suggest it should be higher.

And yes, 6pm to 8pm in Washington Park can be windy--just ask anyone who has played outfield for the Panthers.

I think charging $5 a head is a great idea... It keeps the riff raff out... also keeps out lots of the people who just talk over the music and aren't there for the performance.

The location changed due to construction and covid. They can space groups further apart and the field allows for more people. Since everyone needs to register for a spot, a small fee is needed in order for the system to recognize the registration. Friday night was chosen as they were hoping foot traffic would help downtown businesses this year. People picking up food etc.. The Burlingame Park and Rec Foundation will selling individual wine and beer bottles.

It is $5 per group not per head. Really chicken feed. Where is the new location?

Washington Park Baseball Field

2-cents

Remember:
If you're vaccinated you don't need to worry about gathering indoors or outdoors--no mask, no social distancing. For some reason, the pols and other people in power can't fathom that scientific fact. And if you haven't been vaccinated, good luck with that (not just for Covid, but for all the other viruses you should already be vaccinated against).
2-cents.

So sensible.

Laura

Problem being the State of California and the State mask mandate that they require local governments to follow. However this may all change on June 15th when the State opens up. The field may be wide open.
