We do have credit card machines at the park for tickets and beer sales.  Most food vendors also provide a credit card option. However, an ATM will also be on site (sponsored by PDQ Merchant Enterprises and McHenry Savings Bank).

Attendees who are over 21 can receive a wristband at our Designated Driver booth (provided by Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital) that allows them to receive free water and soft drinks throughout the night.  Individuals who have a designated driver wristband will not be allowed to purchase or consume beer, and individuals who have purchased or consumed beer will not be eligible for the Designated Driver booth.
