and the presale price is oh so low

If you go… you might want to purchase your ticket early. http://www.burningriverfest.org/ or wait and pay the extra $2. If you have never been to Whiskey Island, you have missed out on one of the most beautiful lakeside parks in the region. One of the most common questions I hear is, "Where the heck is Whiskey Island anyway?" Well if you go to Edgewater make a hard right (or go east) if you're coming from the Shoreway and hug the right-hand side road traveling east past the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The road is narrow here with dense vegetation; just keep going for a wonderful surprise. The island is 22 acres, so there is plenty of room for you and your family and friends. Here's a map http://www.burningriverfest.org/directions.html
Don't forget your sunscreen! See you there!
