There are plenty of other parking lots close to the Festival site that are free: Holy Trinity Episcopal Chruch, the Dickinson ISD Education Support Center, and Amegy Bank.

CITY OF DICKINSON PRESENTS FOURTH ANNUAL RED, WHITE & BAYOU CRAWFISH AND TEXAS MUSIC FESTIVAL
DICKINSON - The City of Dickinson is gearing up for the 4th Annual Red, White & Bayou Crawfish and Texas Music Festival. The event will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2013, from 11:00 am until 11:00 pm at the intersection of FM 517 and Highway 3 in Dickinson. The hugely popular Josh Abbot Band will headline this year's Festival, with four additional Texas Bands taking the stage throughout the day: Rosehill, Heather Roberts Band, Level One Band, and Curtis Poullard and The Creole Zydeco Band. In addition to the outstanding musical entertainment, there will be plenty food choices for festival goers. This year's Festival features succulent, seasoned crawfish and an outstanding variety of fun and delicious carnival fare, including the crowd-favorite, funnel cakes. And don't forget, not only will you be able to eat the little Cajun mudbugs, you'll be able to choose your personal favorite to compete in the rousing Crawfish Races. For visitors looking for that special gift, a leisurely stroll down Vendor Row offers shoppers a venue of exclusive products perfect for any occasion. Kids! There will be no better time spent than at Red, White & Bayou. Fun and excitement awaits youngsters on the Rock Climbing Wall, the Inflatable Obstacle Course, the thrilling Mechanical Bull and, new this year, a 70 foot Zip Line.
"In 2012, approximately 4,000 people came out to Red, White & Bayou to eat over 3,000 pounds of crawfish, jam to our great entertainers, play in the Kid Zone, and shop the more than 50 merchants on Vendor Row" says Event Chair, Julie Johnston. "Not only did everyone have a great time, the 2012 Festival resulted in approximately $18,000 in net proceeds thus allowing us to award $8,000 in grants to local nonprofits. Additionally, the Festival created an economic impact of approximately $196,455 for the area which was a 27% increase over the 2011 Festival. And we can't wait for everyone to experience this year's Red, White & Bayou. Josh Abbott Band is going to bring down the house!" The City of Dickinson is grateful to this year's sponsors including, but not limited to, Dickinson Management District No. 1, Del Papa Distributing Co., Dickinson Economic Development Corporation, Regions Bank, 100.3 The Bull, Waste Management, and Dickinson Festival of Lights.
