For those of you who are unsure as to where to park. Here are some tips:
There is a limited amount of parking space near Penn Park. Parking is based on a first come, first served. So the earlier you are able to come the better your chances of getting parking near the event’s location.
Park Bank was so gracious to allow about 30 plus cars to park in their parking lot. Please know that the only place you can park is in the area that is highlighted in red on the map. When coming from the Beltline the highlighted section will be on your right side. Secondly, participants can park on Taft St, Fisher St., on certain parts of Baird St., Beld St. and Kenward St. Most of these streets are highlighted in blue on the map.
