Usually I wouldn't sweat it. I'm not scared of driving downtown or finding parking....but tomorrow is the day of all days downtown. With Battle of Flowers and other fiesta events going on...what do you all think?

Is it going to be horrible? It's a breakfast/lunch kind of thing. I need to be there at 9. Do you think traffic is going to be an issue that early? I'm going to be going straight down 10 from De Zavala.

The usual trouble spots are right when I get on and around Woodlawn where
it splits.......but just to be cautious....should I leave extra super early? Expect to pack my patience along with my GPS? Opinions? And where should I park?

Parking will be horrific. You could take a cab.

Really? At 9 am? I'm fine hoofing it for a few blocks, I just want to know how many a "few" will be....hmmm....car pooling is probably the best option.

Maybe VIA Park and Ride is a possibility. You can use the one at Crossroads Park and Ride and you can take the Express bus route that uses the Expressway.

the bus or taxi is your best bet. Getting there and parking is one thing, getting back out is another. I'd make sure to keep it easy and either drive to the park and ride and cab or bus from there. It would be nicer and easier to hail a cab. Or have the restaurant call a cab for you when your ready to leave. Another alternative, go to the parade.

To secure their perfect viewing location, people camp out the night before and arrive hours before the BOF parade. Some of these hardcore folks are probably parked downtown right now in the spot they'll be occupying until after the parade..

Believe me, Bowie - they've been down there for days already! Personally, there's NOTHING that'd get me downtown tomorrow!

Oh, i know people camp out. I'm not new to this. I was just wondering about the Mi Tierra area specifically.

There is an express bus from Crossroads to downtown that runs right by Mi Tierra. But it only leaves once an hour I think.

The parade is happening on the east side of downtown. I don't even think it would be crowded on the west end.

This is what I was thinking. Obviously everyone else thinks I should avoid it like the plague.
