Just got back from Target with some goodies. Everything was scattered on different end caps along back walls, so dig around! I got an Embark 6 person tent for $27 marked down from $90. I have a 4 person Coleman, so I might not keep this one, but I couldn't pass up the price. I'll read some reviews before I decide. I got a small Coleman table for $13 marked down from $45, two headlamps for $5 marked down from $15..
They also had the Coleman Instant Tents (9 person for $60 (was $150), 7 person for $75 (was $200)) Swiss Gear rain coats for $9 marked down from $30, a $50 10x10 straight leg shade tent marked down from $150.. hmm some nice water bottles were also on clearance. Oh, and stuff like disposable razors and sunscreen in the pharmacy section.

I'm a freak and I can't wait to see what others find at Target! I'll check another town this weekend when I'm up there. Things seemed to be flying off the shelf while I was there, though. We'll see. I was hoping to find some more tarps and maybe those folding stadium seats to bring into centeroo.
i would think with sidewalls like that you would DIE inside there in the bonnaroo heat. you gotta let it breathe.
yeah. pretty sure it's optional since the picture I saw didn't have the sidewalls up. Usually canopies have them optional or as a separate purchase altogether. I've considered Panorama sidewalls for my EZ Up, but it's too expensive and can't find them for cheaper than the official EZ Up site. They're half wall on the bottom and then upper portion is mesh. Really though...tiedye some sheets and attach them to the sides and you've got a groovy, colorful, breathable setup. (if it had been worth the buy, i'd say save the sidewalls for a cooler trip where you don't need a breeze as much but need shade/privacy *shrug* but oh well)
I wish I had more stuff I needed to buy, but really I have too much camping junk. No idea what to buy for gear...just new clothes, really. Or mayyyybe a new point and shoot camera, but that's hard when I have a DSLR that's almost always better quality.
I don't know if anybody has talked about this but there's a website called theclymb.com that sells camping equipment at heavily discounted prices. You have to sign up for the website, but there are always deals on things you can take to bonnaroo.
Went to Target last night, picked up an EZ up for $50 (originally $160, $130 on amazon), a small folding table for $15 and a flask with retractable shot glass. No tents were on sale (or they were sold out), air matresses were on clearance too, a queen size aerobed was $45, I passed on that though. Thanks a lot to Madeline for the tip!

My target had some things on clearance but not all. EZ Ups and most tents weren't on clearance but smaller items were. I got some tent stakes for a buck, bungee cords for cheap, and a nice $25 camping chair for $7. May stop by again this weekend to see what's left.
