If you brought four people with you, you will have four passes on your dash. failure to comply will only get your vehicle ticked and/or towed!
The Reenacter parking area will be marked as to where you will park. The MP's will be around to assist you in complying in case of confusion.

You cannot park your vehicle on the west side of the camp area and village per Rockford Park District.
Reenacters will be given 10 minutes to unload/load their car during setup hours (except during school tour and public hours).
