New Clear Bag Policy Announced
April 1st 2021

In order to help reduce the contact between staff and patrons upon entry, Tony’s Pizza Events Center is implementing a Clear Bag Policy effective April 1, 2021. The new policy will allow for a speedier entry process, improve security and limit the need for staff to handle a patron’s belongings.

“We want all of our patrons to have a safe and enjoyable experience at Tony’s Pizza Events Center,” said Susan Trafton, General Manager. “Our team has worked together with the City of Salina and Saline County to put together a comprehensive plan to enhance the health and safety of every person who visits the facility.”

Beginning April 1st, approved bags will include clear tote bags up to 12” x 12” x 6”, one-gallon plastic freezer bags, or small purses or clutches not to exceed 8.5” x 5.5”. Patrons whose bags exceed these dimensions will be asked to return belongings to their vehicles. Along with large bags, prohibited items include, but are not limited to:

  • Alcoholic beverages or controlled substances (unless prescribed for the possessor)
  • Professional cameras, audio or visual recording equipment, radios, televisions or any other such electronic devices, except when authorized.
  • Tri-pods
  • Pets (Excluding Service Animals)
  • Bottles, either plastic or glass
  • Shopping carts
  • Strollers or diaper bags
  • Cans or coolers
  • Outside food or beverage
  • Fireworks
  • Weapons and dangerous devices of any type
  • Items which may be used as a weapon or projectile.

In addition to the new clear bag policy, staff has installed touchless faucets and paper towel dispensers in all restrooms (self-flushing toilets were previously installed), automatic hand sanitizer stations, touch-free temperature scanners, as well as upgraded HVAC filtration and developed event floor plans that allow for social distancing.
