We love doing this show! They close down the street and set up a stage in the crosswalk, set up rows of chairs (but leave plenty of room for dancing), with food vendors and wine and beer. It feels like a small town street party and it's free! You can also make reservations at the Hyatt to sit on their outside patio if you want and there is lots of free parking, too.
