Parking, Shuttle, Directions & Road Closures

HANDICAPPED PARKING / SHUTTLE

Handicapped ParkingUpon entrance to the Parking Lots located off HELMER ROAD, simply show your handicapped parking permit. The Parking Committee will direct you to the designated parking area. Our tentative plans will be to park all handicapped vehicles at the north end of the main lot next to taxiway Alpha. This will make it very convenient for our Shuttle Service to pick you up and return you to your vehicle.

However, should anyone need any assistance or walking is a burden, simply let the Parking Committee know that you will need our "FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE," and they will call the Shuttle Service Committee for you.Parking Committee Volunteers - Photo by Paul LondonFree Shuttle - Photo by Paul London

When you are ready to return to your vehicle, simply go to one of the Beverage Tents, back to the Main Entrance or flag down any volunteer on a golf cart and they will call the Shuttle Service .

There will also be wheelchair accessible port-a-jons on the event grounds.
