The numerous kids’ activities were wonderful. My littles had a great time doing activities during the day and we returned in the evening for s’mores and fireworks. Traffic control this year was great! … This year was clearly well-thought-out because traffic flowed nicely, and we were out in a reasonable amount of time.”
