PARKING UPDATE FOR OKTOBERFEST
We know that our guests will have a great time this weekend at Oktoberfest and the first step is to find a parking space.
Ample parking is available in the garage on Blenkner St (accessible from High St) and the flat lots on both sides of Liberty St, as well as city parking along the streets surrounding the area (be aware that the meters are for a maximum of 3 hours in many locations).
The few spaces directly next to the Germania building in the alley are reserved for the bands and those ACTIVELY dropping off or picking up guests. Also please be aware that parking in the Kroger parking lot will likely result in your car being towed. Germania members with a parking sticker can park in the Kroger lot in the outer row on the East and South edges of their lot THIS WEEKEND ONLY. If you have any questions, fire away on FB and we'll answer them all weekend long.
