We have had a few questions about purchasing tickets for Southside Summer Nights. It is set up for a regular adult and child (Children under 12 are free). We do this so that we can estimate how many people may show up and it helps our food vendors as well.
If you purchase a ticket online, you can bring your free person to the gate. They will not have a ticket, you will. We will go by your purchase to determine how many people get in with you free.
Hopefully this will clear up some confusion :)

Ok folks, Its time! Got the first round of tickets on sale for our first Southside Summer Nights! I am working on the event page now. I hope you can make it! Food trucks, friends, beautiful scenery and great music... What more could you ask for? By the way, did you know... If you purchase your ticket online- you get one free?

A STEP BACK IN TIME Step away from the hustle and bustle back to a time when toys, tools, clothing and furniture was hand-made. Food was grown in your garden or your livestock pen and generously shared. Work was hard and constant, but the quiet stretched for miles. See every-day life in the mid-1800...
