Waterfront Park to Close for Two-Day Music Fest

The County’s Waterfront Park has been reserved for a music festival taking place Saturday, Oct. 10 and Sunday, Oct. 11.

The entire park, including the playground, will be closed to the public for those two days.

Preparations for the CRSSD Fest get underway Wednesday and access to the park and metered parking spots will be limited in some areas Wednesday through Friday as the promoter installs equipment and fencing for the event. The playground and restroom in the southeast corner of the park and the south fountain will remain open until the park’s regular closing time at 10 p.m. on Friday night.

The festival runs from noon to 11 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday. Up to 13,000 music fans are expected each day. Only ticket-holders over the age of 21 will be allowed into the festival. Attendees are urged to use public transportation or a ride service.

The park will re-open to the public at 6 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 12 with the exception of the civic greens and the West Plaza. Those areas will be closed so festival operators can break down the equipment and remove the fencing. The park will resume normal operations Tuesday, Oct. 13.
