There was an assembly line of hot dogs, chips, juices, and PPE materials for all attendants. Guests could also head inside for free vaccinations administered by South Shore Hospital. As a thank you to those that got vaccinated, patrons were gifted with vaccination gift cards and Lawrence Hall wristbands, pens, and water bottles.
