Parking: Plan on arriving to the area at least 30 minutes early so that you have plenty of time to find parking, use the restroom, walk to our meeting point, etc. This is a popular time to visit Grapevine so expect traffic delays, crowds, etc. There are several parking options (mostly paid) throughout the area – look for parking signs or use GPS.

Before and/or After the Event: Several great options along Main Street. Also, “Harvest Hall”, inside Grapevine Main is an indoor food hall with seating, restrooms, and several dining options.
