I am new to this site. This will be my 23rd Buffett concert, I have always had a blast with the tailgating, but I am experiencing a first this year. I am bringing an RV. SO with that being said, any pointer, suggestions, etc? Also any idea when the parking lot is scheduled to open at Gexa?

I think the parking lot opens at noon on concert day. They are not allowing overnight RV parking at Gexa--or so we have heard through the grapevine.

I did speak to someone at Gexa and they are working with City officials about getting approval for overnight parking. She said that will not be determined for a few more weeks. I was poking around to see if anyone had other inside information since this is my first rodeo with an RV.

Back at the original Hoot Island, parking was (I think) $20 a space. Does it still work that way?

Parking is included in the price of your ticket unless you want VIP.

I thought we had to pay an additional charge, but it's been too long ago for me to remember [smilie=asa.gif]

I have my ticket in hand...it says $6.00 parking INC/and SFC included in the $136.50.

VIP parking tickets are $30.00.

Now, if they let RVs stay overnight, I assume there will be another charge for that.

Let me ask Larry when he gets home, but he dropped me off and went back to get friends and I *think* he had to pay twice.

So you buy 5 tickets, but have 1 car.
This means you get 5 parking spots?
I never saw a JB ticket that included parking.....

Larry says he had to pay to drop me off, but when he came back with friends, there wasn't anyone at the gats, so he got in free that time.
This was before they gave out tickets so you could come and go
