The 8pm entry cutoff was absolutely posted online. I saw it in several different places beforeRead Moreenter ing and was aware of it even before I bought tickets, because I saw it online. The lines for food were long but there was absolutely no line -- at all -- for beer. Are you kidding me? No line for BEER?!! And, I went twice! Unfortunately, the beer cutoff was 8pm. I think it used to be 9pm, years ago. I did not pay for rooftop, or VIP, and still had better seats for the fireworks than I've ever had for any other fireworks show in my life (except for last time I was here). I brought a newbie with me, whom I had to persuade against the Burbank show. She was blown away, so to speak. Overall, both of us were more than happy with the entire event, especially the fireworks! I will return, for sure.

Zachary, I stand corrected. After reading your post I went back and do see that the flyer didRead Morestate no admittance after 8:00 p.m., but I also checked both the Brown Paper Ticket info. and the info. accompanying the flyer and could not find mention of that. I am also happy that you were part of the 50% of the General Admission who had a great view of the fireworks, but since I was part of the 50% who saw only the fireworks that were high enough to be seen over the trees, I still feel that after paying $120 for admittance for our group that everyone who paid to be there should have a view of the fireworks.

Generally speaking I think this event was very poorly communicated. We had never been and decidedRead Moret o go this year so we bought General Admission tickets plus rooftop access. We had to call several times to determine what we needed to bring (were there chairs on the roof? what was the setup?) and what to expect (what type of food? how many different vendors?) and still we weren't aware that food sales stopped at 8pm (lucky they let us buy dinner for the kids at 8:15pm or we may have had to leave before the fireworks....and if that happened, we wouldn't be admitted back in b/c it was after 8pm!). Also, we were very disappointed that wine/beer stopped at 8pm as well. There was nothing on the brochure/map they handed out to indicate what time things closed....that would've been nice to know. I'm not sure why they don't post a schedule online before you buy tickets, and let you know more of what to expect before the event so you want to come again the next year. The rooftop gave us a great view of spectacular fireworks, but we had to stand as the only seats available for our party of 8 were 1-offs here and there. And we couldn't understand a word of the looonnnggg speech someone (Charlie Brown's teacher?) gave before the star spangled banner was sung (that was lovely). Lastly, I get that they choreographed the fireworks to the songs (rainbow fireworks to "somewhere over the rainbow" and smiley faces to "happy"), but much of the time the music was drowned out by the popping explosions of the fireworks. Why not just have some quiet and oooos and aaaahhhs instead? Bottom line: maybe most of the needed information is available somewhere online, but it needs to be better organized and better communicated. Set expectations appropriately so everyone has a good time!

I care. I don't believe any poisons should be sold, period. Do any of your neighbors have aRead Moresecuri ty cam that might show the suspects. Maybe social media can help with some clues. I hope your dog makes a full recovery. Have you offered a reward?
