In consideration of being permitted to participate in 2024 Lunar New Year Festival and all activities associated with such participation, I agree, on behalf of myself and business to the following:
1. I agree and represent that I have inspected, or immediately upon entering the public property will inspect, the premises and facilities. My entry onto the public property for all purposes associated with the 2024 Lunar New Year Festival (“Program”), including, without limitation, participation or use of any City premises, constitutes an acknowledgment that such premises were inspected and that I find and accept them as being safe and reasonably suited for the purposes of my participation in this Program.
2. I understand that my participation exposes me to the risk of personal injury, death, illness, communicable disease, viruses or property damage. I acknowledge that I am voluntarily participating and agree to assume such risks
3. I release, waive, discharge, and covenant on behalf of myself, business, heirs, executors, and administrators, not to sue the City of Monterey Park, its elected and appointed officials, agents, volunteers, and employees (“Releasees”) from all liability to me, or my business, for any loss or damage, and any claim or demands on account of personal or property injury or because of my death, whether caused by Releasees’ negligence or otherwise, while I and my business, participate in the Program.
4. I agree to indemnify and hold the Releasees harmless from and against any and all claims arising from my, or my business', participation in the Program, whether caused by Releasees’ negligence or otherwise. I will pay all costs incident to any claim, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees.
5. I expressly agree that the foregoing release, waiver, and indemnity agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of California and that if any portion is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
I have read and voluntarily sign the release and waiver of liability and indemnity agreement, and further agree that no oral representations, statements, or inducement apart from the foregoing written agreement have been made.
