Bud Light Party Tent

You shouldn’t have to choose between being directly on the parade route, warming up from the cold, a dance floor with body-moving beats, a restroom without a line and being able to grab a drink whenever you need another.  

That’s why the all-inclusive Bud Light Party Tent is THE place to be for over 9 hours of beer, beats and booze in two climate-controlled tents.
