Blues, Bandits & BBQ – Bigger And Better!

Posted by    |    September 28th, 2011 at 5:10 am

The 2nd Annual Blues, Bandits and BBQ event will take place Saturday, October 22nd, 2011 and will be held at Lake Cliff Park. There’s lots of fun planned for this year, and lots of great changes and additions that will make this even more fun than last year!

Here’s what you need to know:

This will be the first Go Oak Cliff event where we have an admission fee. The cost to attend Blues, Bandits & BBQ is $10 per person (or 2 for 1 if you both come on bicycles), and kids under 12 are free. The reason for the charge is to help cover the cost of putting on an event in the park. The City of Dallas requires us to fence the area and provide additional permits and security. Hopefully this all translates to an even better party for you, but this also means significant costs to Go Oak Cliff. Advance tickets are $10 and are available now at PreKindle. Tickets will be available the day of the event and will be $15. (more…)
