⚠️This event will draw large crowds to the Community Center and downtown area, which will affect normal traffic. The Wendell Police Department will be providing traffic control and security throughout the evening, with certain streets blocked off to traffic to allow for pedestrian safety and traffic flow.

🅿️Wendell Community Park can hold up to 500 vehicles and will be accepting cars until they are full. Once the park has reached this capacity, vehicle access will be closed. Those with handicap placards will need to use Landing View Drive to enter the park. Third Street and Cook Street will be the primary entrance for pedestrian traffic and will be closed to vehicles.
