“One of the last great date nights...”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Maybe it is me, but I have always been a sucker for a drive-in movie. Some of my best dates have been here. It is a great price to see two current movies. If you don't live here and are here during the summer months, they often have children/family movies, and it is a great price to take kids and a fun family night to tailgate.

“Good old fashion fun”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

I love the non commercialized aspects of this swap. There isn't a lot of dealers asking store prices but more of the average person trying to make a buck. What I do find is many dealers buying for their stores so get there early for the best stuff. One mans trash is another's treasures. Good ole fashion swap meet experience.

“Great place for a date. ”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

I live going to see movies here! It's relatively inexpensive and takes you back to the classic drive-ins that are becoming way too rare.

“Sad. (swap meet)”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

We were open-minded about the swap meet, but after paying $1 each to get in, we were disappointed and depressed - it's just a lot of junk piled up on the ground, for the most park. Some of the produce places looked good, and the quesadilla vendor looked like they were cranking out some good food, but the stuff for sale was not worth checking out.
