Sept. 26, 2006
MEMPHIS, TENN. -
The City of Memphis Parks Division, Memphis Police Department and Memphis Area Transit Authority, (MATA) urge the public to plan ahead to avoid parking and traffic congestion in the area of the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium and the Fairgrounds this weekend.
This weekend's activities include Saturday's 11 a.m. match-up at the Liberty Bowl featuring the University of Memphis Tigers vs the University of Tennessee, and the culmination of the Mid South Fair.
Arrive at least 2 hours early to park at one of the 3 lots on Early Maxwell. See Fairgrounds Map. Cost for parking is $7.00/vehicle.
Arrive at least 1 hour early to park in School Board/Tobey Park area, north of the Stadium on Hollywood.
If all lots are full, there are public streets in areas adjoining the Fairgrounds that are the best bet.
Officials strongly suggest carpooling or using the MATA shuttle service to the University of Memphis football game.
