The Parking Garage will not be available for parking for safety reasons. Parking will be available on the streets surrounding Historic Downtown and in the Commuter Parking lot, located on Prince William Street. Due to the heavy volume of pedestrians in the street surrounding the festival, cars would not be able to safely exit the garage.

This is a public, outdoor event. No alcohol or open grills. Though we love pets, with thousands of people expected to attend and the loud noise from the fireworks, it is best to leave your pets at home.
