I really enjoy making this happen 1x a summer. And I prefer to sit in the restaurant area. I hate the long lines out side and for some reason I enjoy someone else bringing me my food and drinks here..... more

Highly recommend concert series. Saw Trombone Shorty and it's great to be outside in a smallish venue but still have the amenities of a building (bar, bathrooms, a roof in case it rains). Great show too, see him and his band if you get a chance!
I planned a derby themed party for my friend’s 30th birthday to Canterbury park. The staff was amazing answering all of my last minute questions. They were prompt in calling back… My friend’s feedback: They enjoyed them experience. They had so much fun, everyone showed them love. And they loved the hospitality that they were shown. They got to experience watching the horse race from the winner circle which the kept talking about. This was their first race, but will definitely not be the last.
