With Shaky Knees in T-minus five days and counting. You will want to check out a couple of key bits of info. With tens of thousands of people flooding into the city for the three day festival, getting to Central Park will be festival goers priority number one. As with any Atlanta festival it’s highly advised to use MARTA, Lyft or Uber as a means of getting to the festivities. Or if you must have your car, then scoping out the paid parking lots early – but fair warning, they will be expensive.
Whatever you do, remember to give yourself the time you will need to get into to the city and get through security. Safety will be of the utmost importance, so expect delays at the gates. Just remember that this is for all our well-being and protection.
There are some changes with what you are allowed to bring with you. One thing to remember for this year of the what nots to bring or do, is the bag and size policy. Bags will be restricted to small purses and drawstring bags and may not exceed 14” x 11” x 5” (35cm x 28cm x 12cm). By the way, this is smaller think you can imagine. Also, backpacks and bags with multiple pockets are a no go, but Camelback’s are allowed, as long as they are empty and only have one additional pocket.
One thing I always love about Shaky is there are plenty of hydration stations situated all over the park. Yay! You are allowed to bring into the park up to two factory sealed bottles of water to be refill throughout the day at the free water filling stations.
So remember to stay hydrated, bring loads of sunblock and have the time of your life.
