PARKING: Parking is available at Park District Main Beach lot. Overflow parking will be available behind baseball field. Allow plenty of time to walk from parking area to band stage.
PARK ENTRANCE PASS: Each Band member and their family members will need a park pass to present to Main Beach gate personnel in order to receive free entrance for the day. If you do not have a pass you will be charged the daily park entrance fee. A maximum of 4 passes will be distributed to each band member. If you have not received your passes contact your section coordinator or Susan Sijersen prior to July 31st to arrange pick up.
The entrance pass will allow you access to park facilities including picnic area, bandstage, playground and swimming beach. There are indoor restrooms and locker rooms available for changing and showering before/after swimming. There are also food concessions available for purchase. CLPD Lifeguards are on duty in swimming area. We welcome you and your families to enjoy the day at the beach and encourage you to bring a picnic lunch/dinner to eat while listening to other bands. Attached is a list of Main Beach Rules for your reference and safety. Picnic tables are available on a first come first serve basis. The park opens at 10:00 am and depending on weather, there can be a large crowd on Sundays (which is great from a band performance perspective…), but does not guarantee a picnic table will be available for your use. So we recommend you bring your own lawn chairs, blankets, small folding tables, coolers, etc for your picnic needs.
HOSPITALITY TENT: CLCB will have hospitality tent near bandstage as a central information center, for band and family members to share their picnic dinners, obtain extra water, socialize with visiting band members, etc.
WEATHER: In case of inclement weather, please call the band phone 815- 679-BAND (2263) after 2:00 p.m., or check your email, text, CLCB facebook or CLCB website. clcb.org. We will update information as available.
