Sold Out in 2019 |
“Guests loved the changes we implemented last year!” said Barb Krumm, Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Ocean Lakes Family Campground. “We sold out last year and had guests scrambling to find tickets. Featuring four bands, as opposed to our traditional eight bands allows us to book big names and adjust the schedule for attendees.”
