The Sights & Sounds Board will offer discounts for next year’s event to patrons who were rained out this year, according to city officials.

This year’s event, slated for Nov. 30-Dec. 3, drew record crowds for the first two days until rain forced the cancelation of the final two days.

Those who purchased the four-day wristband will have the opportunity to redeem the 2011 wristband at the 2012 event for a $2 discount for a single day pass or a four – day admission pass, said Melissa Millecam, City of San Marcos spokesperson.
