Highland Jazz and Blues Fest parking? Bicycle or complimentary iShuttle from Mall St Vincent on Sat, Nov 15, noon to 5 pm
With the success of the Highland Jazz and Blues Fest (Sat, Nov 15, 12 to 5) has come parking problems for the surrounding homeowners.
Says Kenney Koonce, "Area law enforcement will be looking for people parking illegally along the streets and at area businesses. Remember, we want the festival to be an asset to the neighborhood. Please do not park in a manner that prevents our neighbors from conducting their lives as normal. Meaning, do not park at area businesses or where blocking traffic."
So the HJBF will continue to offer free alternatives. "If you arrive by car, plan to park at Mall St Vincent and take the free iShuttle in heated comfort. You'll be dropped off right inside the grounds," says Koonce.
This year bicyclists will have a parking rack courtesy of River City Cycling. Seek the bike park near the Creswell St entrance.
"There's no curbside parking in the neighborhood anymore?" asked one observer. Replied city councilman Jeff Everson, "There is, but it runs out quick!"
