A chilly night atop Red Mountain means warm eats and drinks are a must. Happily, both will be on-site during the event.

Choose from a handful of local food trucks like A Train and Sweet Spun Cotton Candy, and be sure to swing by the hot chocolate station for the perfect winter drink. Beer and wine will also be for purchase, provided by B&B Bartending Service.
