Length of ceremony:

Handicapped Parking and Seating:

  • Most of the handicapped parking will be in the south lot, accessible through driveway #1.
  • There is a smaller handicapped lot directly off the Post Road as well. 
  • Only cars with handicapped permits will be allowed to park in these areas.  
  • There will be a golf cart shuttle service from these lots to the field; some walking will be required to the seats.
    • If you do not have a handicapped permit but would like to drop someone off in the South Lot to access the shuttle service, you may.  
  • Once at the field, there will be handicapped seating available on the track.  To accommodate everyone, we ask that only one companion accompany the person. For example, if you are a group of six - the person who requires handicapped seating plus one companion will be able to sit on the track.  The other four people in the group will be asked to sit on the bleachers.
  • There is also handicapped seating on the home side bleachers.
