Clear Backpacks & Totes
Are you headed to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass this weekend? I am!
If you are going, you probably know that this has always been a casual and open-to-everyone event. And it still is. But due to the numerous shooting incidents in our country lately, our friends at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass have needed to up their game security-wise. Now there are four entry and exit points (click here for more information) and security scanners similar to those at just about any event these days. In addition, no coolers will be allowed (except for small ones for medical needs). Small purses and bags are still welcome, and yes, you can bring your trusty water bottle too.
So no sandwiches, hummus, or beer? Fear not, you can still bring goodies with you. But they must be in a clear backpack or tote no larger than 16″ x 16″ x 8″. Where are you going to get such a bag? Why, Cole Hardware of course! Our clear totes and backpacks will get you through security checks quickly and are perfect for all concert and sporting venues.
All stores are stocked with both clear totes and clear backpacks, ready to do their part in facilitating your enjoyment of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and future events. I’ll be bouncing between the Banjo and Rooster Stages. Hope to see you there!
