Just got this e-mail and wanted to share:
We wanted to fill you in on the "Tuesday on the Island" Tailgate party details. This event, which is presented by Hy-Vee and goes from 1-7pm on Tuesday, April 17, gives Parrotheads from all over a central location to "party with a purpose" prior to the concert that night!
Tuesday on the Island, presented by Hy-Vee, will feature live music by Cruize Control, food and drink specials, and giveaways including tickets to the concert as well as upgrades, a trip, cash and various other prizes. The all ages party has a $5 admission charge, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to the charitable causes supported by the Des Moines Parrothead Club and the Isle of Iowa Parrothead Club.
The tailgate party will happen rain or shine. With nice weather the party will take place outside; however, Hy-Vee Hall is the alternate location should it rain on April 17.
There is limited availability in the tailgate party, so purchase your tickets NOW! To purchase, visit the Wells Fargo Arena Box Office, Hy-Vee Food Stores in the Des Moines area, Community Choice Credit Union, or call Jason in our Group Sales Department at 515-564-8146. You may also purchase from the Des Moines Parrothead Club or Isle of Island Parrothead Club. Tickets will be available on-site the day of the concert as supplies last.
Because of the tailgate party happening in the lot nearest the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center, the lot available for the concert will be the large lot north of Crocker Street with entrances off Third and Fifth Streets. Cost for cars is $7 and for RVs/Busses the cost is $25. The lots at Principal Park will also open at 8 a.m. on April 17 and will charge the same as the Iowa Events Center lots.
In addition to parking at the Iowa Events Center and Principal Park, it is advised that Parrotheads find parking throughout downtown in the numerous parking garages, surface lots, and street parking. Please be advised that because the event is on a Tuesday, most of the street parking in the downtown area has restricted times and access due to the morning and afternoon commute. Rates, restrictions and availability vary for downtown parking areas.
