Festival Updates | Transpo Almost Sold Out | Bag Search
June 3, 2013
FESTIVAL UPDATES VIA TWITTER & INSTAGRAM
Only 4 days until the party starts, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates and news regarding the festival. We will be pushing out information via these channels to make your festival experience better, so don’t sleep on this!
FERRIES AND BROOKLYN SHUTTLES ALMOST SOLD OUT
We’re not kidding folks – festival ferries from Manhattan and festival shuttles from Williamsburg are very, very close to selling out. Make sure you get these in the next couple days, because it’s looking like they will be entirely sold out prior to festival days. Also, please keep in mind that the Saturday of the festival weekend is the 116th Street Festival and the Sunday of the festival weekend is the Puerto Rican Day Parade. Things will be quite busy around those parts, so taking either the ferry or the shuttle is the very best way to avoid the congestion and go to/from the festival the quickest.
We are required to search each and every bag upon entry to the festival, and each entrance will have separate/dedicated lanes for bag searches. These bag search lanes will move a bit slower than other non bag search lanes, so please be patient if you are bringing a bag and waiting in line. To avoid these lines, we encourage you to leave your bags at home!
