An entire festival dedicated to celebrating the love of reading and writing in general is always something to look forward to. But this Saturday, UA will see more traffic than just those attending the book festival.
With softball and men's basketball both playing games at home that day, most parking south of Speedway will be reserved for the sports fans with parking permits, leaving areas north of Speedway, east of Mountain Avenue and, on the south end of the UA Mall, west of Highland Avenue open for those attending the festival.
The Second Street parking garage will be reserved for vendors and authors at the festival. Parking in all other garages besides the Cherry Avenue Garage and all surface lots west of Mountain Avenue will be free.
