For anyone visiting this event, you should know that the place can easily get extremely crowded on weekends. The best time to come and visit is of course when they open in the mornings. Parking will be available throughout the area too. There is also lots of food and drink being sold here.
Buses are available but you need to check with the bus services as Putrajaya has their own bus service called Nadi Putrajaya. Taxis are hard to get here so this option is not recommended.
