This will be a very busy weekend for Railroad Square and the West End Neighborhood. One of the benefits to living in a downtown neighborhood- entertainment and events are right outside your front door. Forewarned is forearmed- take note of street closures and traffic. No big whoop… just plan your weekend accordingly Remember, you could “Regatta” all weekend and never leave the ‘hood.
Street Closures: Friday, Sept 24 from 3:30-7:15 Adams Street will be closed the CHOPS unveiling event.
Regatta Traffic & Street Closures: Be aware the the Regatta website is directing traffic to Pierson Street to the 6th Street Theater parking lot- but ,of course, parking will overflow into the neighborhood so plan with that in mind. Regatta Street Closures
