They will issue you a wrist band. Without this if you go on your boat and then reenter the park you will be asked to leave. 
Arguing with Celebrate De Pere Staff will result in a visit from the De Pere Police. We are hoping that this year we can get through the event without any trespassers or arguments. 
If you wish to dock your boat and enjoy the down town area, you will need to dock at the public docks located just North of the De Pere Lock. You cannot cross the park while it is closed, or if you have not purchased admission while the park is open for the event.
