Transportation & Parking
There will be limited parking for spectators at the Gale Center on July 20th and it will be first come first served – get there early if you want on site parking. Of course, all musicians playing in the event will have on-site parking.
Other parking areas you can use are not that far – really a short walk.
Premier Ferti Tech on Stanley Ave (the old Unit Rig) and Youngs Insurance (Stanley Ave at Thorold Stone Rd) are only one half a kilometer away – a nice walk. The City Yard on Stanley Ave is about a 2 KM walk – a bit farther but still walk-able if you like walking.
We will have a shuttle running from 4 PM until 9 PM which will make stops about every 20 minutes. If you have mobility issues – or it is just too hot to walk – you can wait for a shuttle. There is plenty of handicapped parking at the event for those that need it. We suggest locals just get dropped off or use Niagara Transit to get there – that will take away the worry of
