One ticket is sold for the Saturday evening performance. Come early, stay late! You may enter the show grounds at anytime that day with a reserved grandstand ticket, but you may only sit in your seat during the time stated on the ticket. Each reserved grandstand seat is $10 per person.
What are the 'best' places to sit in the grandstands?
