Two Days To Edgefest

EdgefestI'll be spending Saturday enjoying Edgefest 2008. Back in the day that meant sitting in traffic on the 400 and hauling my ass up to Barrie, but now I can take the TTC to Downsview Park. That's pretty sweet.

I'll likely spend 12 hours outdoors, so I must remember the sunscreen and plenty of water. Does anyone know the Downsview Park rules for bringing water? I know glass and cans aren't allowed, but can you bring in bottled water with the caps on?

For those of you who have never been to Downsview Park, here's the map. I've got the lineup times posted in the comments for this entry. It should be fun, let's hope it doesn't rain.

I like the one bottle of water rule. I am sure that is for safety and not for the concession stand sales.

At least they won't hassle you for bringing in your digital camera. And yeah, that one bottle rule is interesting. They happen to see $3.50 bottles of water on-site, of course.

I'll make my one bottle an 18 litre jug!
