Who cares? Tell your family you love them, and enjoy your 4th of July.

I agree, who cares. The square will be open to everyone. If those that are willing to pay want to pay to have a guaranteed seat and access then good for them. The VIP stuff is sold out. It is going to be very, very crowded.

I'm sorry the previous two posters are dismissive of your question. Civil-minded people appreciate that there are no stupid questions and if they don't know the answer and don't care about the topic, they'd simply not respond.

I did some checking and found The Villages Entertainment website's blurb on the event here:
All American Brews and Cruise VIP Experience - The Villages Entertainment : The Villages Entertainment

For $50 you get: VIP tent access, reserved seating, direct access to the dance floor, bluefin appetizers, 2 free drink tickets, and a VIP cash bar.

I don't know what the appetizer menu is, whether those drink tickets are for any drink or only a select list, nor do I know if that cash bar has reduced pricing, or any special drinks that might cost more (or less), nor do I know if happy hour pricing will be valid at this cash bar. The website didn't specify one way or another.

Two tickets would be 80 bucks, a savings of 10 dollars per person. A table for 6 is $225, which comes out to $37.50 per person, a savings of $12.50 per person.

All of the rest of the event is free to everyone, including non-reserved seating, market vendors, an information tent with a drawing for some kind of prize, a craft beer tent (which I assume you'd have to pay for the beer itself, you just don't have to pay an entry fee to get in line), food trucks (you definitely have to pay them for the food), and the actual entertainment itself.

I don't know who gets the money but The Villages Entertainment is a for-profit entity.

Looks like it will get rained out. We are right in the middle of a large thunderstorm. I'll loan you my umbrella for 10 bucks.

I almost alway agree with your position, but more important, I want to recognize that you always post a civil, well-reasoned, and helpful reply.

+1. I was going to post the same. Factual and nonjudgmental post, Jaz.

Happy 4th to all.

Don't think our posts were judgmental, the information was publicly available if one wanted to look for it. My opinion was "who cares" who gets the money. There always seems to be hidden agenda's that someone is doing something sneaky when there is a charge or that somehow someone is gaining an advantage over someone that doesn't want to participate. Saying we were dismissive is ok, it is your opinion though misguided.

Not a very big turnout unfortunately in Brownwood. There were thunderstorms but I watched the webcam and saw people dancing with their umbrellas to Johnny Wild til 9pm and Scooter over in Spanish Springs til 9pm. Sumter Landing closed down earlier. Too bad because a lot of planning went into it.

Default VIP Tent in Brownwood

Just out of curiosity where was this VIP tent supposed to be set up? I did not see it on the webcam so I guess it never made it.
