To those that have been to the festival, is it hard to find parking? Any suggestions on a good place to park?

I posted the same question on the Apex forums (www.apexnc.com) and didn't get a whole lot of responses. People said they just park on this or that street and it's not a problem. I guess I was expecting something like Spring Daze and the offsite parking/shuttlebus. The ad in today's Cary newspaper doesn't mention parking or shuttles. I guess I'll find out what it's like on Saturday!

Peak Fest is this Saturday (5/5) -

Quote:
Peak Fest features over 200 vendors with a wide variety of arts and crafts. There will be also plenty of entertainment with stages with music and dance acts, rides, and roving street performers, see map for stage lineups . Also don't forget about that delicious festival food. The festival is from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm on Salem Street in historic downtown Apex, free and open to the public.

The annual Peak Fest that celebrates the “Peak of Good Living” will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2007. This festival has grown from a small community day in a school parking lot to an event which draws hundreds of vendors and over 25,000 people to the streets of downtown Apex. Every year, the Apex Festival Commission plans a bigger and more exciting day.

Children enjoy the KidsZone area with rides and games, and artists and crafters provide lots of shopping opportunities. Festival food like cotton candy, hoagies, and ice cream is sure to please, but you must try some of the international fare like Thai chicken, Chinese noodles and Greek gyros. Local talent and family entertainment provide dance, song and comedy on the stages. The week of activities includes a golf tournament, athletic contests, barbecues, and shopping specials. Festival day begins with a pancake breakfast prepared and served by the Apex Rotary Club in the historic Salem St. Fire Station.

You park on the streets around Salem St. Every year more people go, so now you pretty much park on the borders of Apex and walk in. I wish they'd have it earlier, rather then the first hotter the hades weekend of the year. Sad to say we don't bother going any more. Between the long walk from the car and the lack of shade there, I can't pay my kids to go any more Last time we went (2 years ago) there was nothing there that you couldn't get at the Farmer's Market (in the shade) (with parking).
