Just got this in my email inbox and thought I'd share it with all of you who are traveling to Indianapolis this weekend:
On Saturday, June 13, Indiana Pride 2009 Parade and Festival will be held along Mass Ave and in University Park. Event hours are 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. Expect heavy pedestrian activity in the area during this time. The following street closures will be in effect for this event:
- Vermont Street between Meridian and Pennsylvania streets will be closed from 5 p.m. June 12 through 11:59 p.m. June 13.
- New York Street between Meridian and Pennsylvania streets will be closed from 6 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. June 13.
During this event, please plan your travel through Downtown accordingly. There will be traffic and parking restrictions near the event sites. Log onto www.indydt.com for additional information.
This area of downtown is several blocks northeast of the theatre and a few blocks from the Hilton Garden Inn so it's not likely you will be directly affected by the street closures, however it may reduce the amount of available street parking and cause general traffic slow-downs due to extra pedestrians in the area. Just something to keep in mind as you plan your trip.
