Here are some transportation and parking tips and tricks for when you head to the Parade of Lights!
  • The first hour of parking is FREE in the parking garages, and FREE on the weekends in all parking spaces Downtown.
  • Ride the Line! Mountain Line is a great way to come Downtown and save some gas. It’s also Zero-Fare and all routes come to Downtown!
