ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — With just one week away from Elmwood Park’s Budweiser Summer Series, Downtown Roanoke, Inc. has announced a new safety measure for concertgoers.

A Facebook post from Downtown Roanoke, Inc. on Friday, July, 8, stated that there is a new clear bag policy for concert attendees. The policy was created to help ensure safety, accelerate entry into the park, and improve the guest experience at concerts.

Bags smaller than 5.5 by 8.5 inches do not need to be clear. However, all bags will be checked upon entry to the park.

The following bags are permitted:

  • One-gallon clear zipper seal bags
  • Clear bags smaller than 12 inches by six inches by 12 inches
  • Medical and diaper bags after inspection
