Festival & Parade Parking, Road Closures & Restrictions
It's never too early to start making transportation plans to the Memorial Day Parade and Festival.
Free public parking is available at the Kaiser Permanente garage (on the corner of N. Washington St. and Park Ave.) and the George Mason Square garage (103 W. Broad St.). Free parking is available on some side streets, but please check signs for time limits.
Visitors to the Memorial Day festivities are reminded to NOT park in private parking lots with posted "No Parking – Towing Enforced" signs, including shopping centers and office buildings. The private lots are for the customers of businesses only. Many businesses enforce parking restrictions on weekends and holidays and may tow without notice. It is possible your vehicle will be towed even if you patronize a business then leave the premises to attend the festival.
