  • Please pull an entry ticket when you enter the ramp.
  • Vouchers will be available at the registration tables for the event. Please be sure to pick up and hold tight to the voucher you receive for free event parking. If you do not pick up a voucher, parking fees will be your responsibility.
  • When exiting one of the three available parking ramps (Main, Pine, and Cherry St.), you will need to scan your entry ticket displaying how much is owed, then scan the voucher second for waived fees. It is a two-step process. This will complete the transaction and the gate will open so you can exit the ramp.
