There will be tons of things happening downtown and at the top of the hill in the hours leading up to the lighting of the bird.
- Firebird Festival events and activities start at 3 p.m. at shops, galleries and eateries all along Bridge Street and on Main Street.
Parking can be a challenge as thousands of people are expected to pour into town.
- Park downtown and take the shuttle busses or walk or bike (weather depending, of course) the parade route across the Gay Street Bridge up the hill and to Friendship Field. The official Firebird Festival website offers information on SEPTA bus service to the festival from surrounding areas.
There will be no parking available at Friendship Field, the site of the bird burning. That parking lot will be filled with vendors for the event. So, seriously, don't even think of attempting it. You'll just find yourself turned away and left frustrated on side streets that will have no available on-street parking.
