Default Plaza Lighting

Ok, last thread in this section for a bit lol.

Who has been to the lighting deal?

How early should we get there and still be able to find parking, and where is a good spot for coffee or hot coca if needed in the area.

If you are ok with walking a bit, an hour ahead of time is fine. Just park off the plaza (North of the plaza is usually good) and walk from there.

I wouldn't plan on trying to get coffee or coco, as the line out of places like starbucks is ridiculous. Bring your own and be happy. As far as getting a good spot, it isn't very hard to work the crowd and make your way towards the stage.

We actually were at the entrance to starbucks, up on the top of the steps when the lights turned on, was a great spot.

If you want some really cool shots of it, you should come up to where I work and take a plaza flight. The take you up 1,000ft over the plaza and do multiple passes so you can take pics from the air.
