i think this year is better at least we dont get crushed on and there would only be a certain amount of people let in if you want to go and see the lights turned on go and stand down in the town there will be no lights near the metrodome

These tickets are free and also take a friend along if u need more tickets for families :) i think its a crap idea anyway so i wont be going, it used to be u could watch the lights and walk around town while listening to the music, now only 1800 ppl will get to hear music which is rubbish, i expect ppl r going to be queing from early hours for these tickets so sleeping bags and hot flasks at the ready lolol
