Prior to the event, we will send you a radio station to tune into with our Bloody Mary playlist. You can listen to it while you come through the drive thru and then also find it on Youtube to listen to once your party elsewhere starts.
The drive thru is double sided. Pull up to the open spot on either side of the first table and check in. Our staff will check you in and provide you with all the information needed for you festival and any additional products you purchased. (You can add on certain products to your festival package when purchasing your ticket.)
Stop at each table and collect all of your package. There are a lot of items. It may be easiest to open your trunk and we can add them in as you come through the event.
The last stop in the drive thru will be a game. If you win, you’ll get a prize. We will then take a photo for those participating in the car/dress up contest. (details below)
Finally, leave Yahara Bay Distillers and go to your chosen location to have your festival. (You will need a microwave or oven near for the food detail.) Take photos and post them on the Facebook event page. (Photo contest details below)
