You can park on the street — meters will be free  — or you can use one of the RTA’s free shuttle for the three-day, downtown festival set to kick off at RiverScape MetroPark, 237 E. Monument Ave., 5 p.m. today, Aug. 11.

“I would think the shuttle will be the way to go for convenience sakes,”  Downtown Dayton Partnership's Val Hunt Beerbower said.  

There are multiple spots in the Oregon District and the near the city’s transportation garage, at East Fifth and Jefferson streets, and other parking lots and facilities.

“They will have continual shuttles running,” Beerbower said.

The shuttle runs 5:30 p.m.-11:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11; 11:30 a.m.-11:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12 and  9:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13.
