It was a good night to enjoy an ice cream cone, as temperatures during the concert hovered in the 80s. Food was available for purchase from Cone Appetit, Rita’s Italian Ice and Van Pelt Hot Dog Co., while beer and wine were available for adult consumption from Lost Tavern Brewing and Sleepy Cat Urban Winery, respectively.
