Most events will take place on Saturday, with a few Friday dates as well. There is an age limit on the events. One must be 18 or older to attend one of these concerts. All of the shows will be held outdoors, next to the Special Events Center and the casino. For those who are concerned about the heat of the desert, the event organizers have installed mist dispensers to keep the guests cool. Another specialty of the event that will help the concert-goers stay cool is the Fantasy Springs’ special summer drink – Drunken Snow Cones. The 5 dollar frozen cocktail features tequila and has a strawberry margarita flavor.
