ok. long story short. I was a member here, havent posted in a couple years. had to make a new profile.

Now for the question. My daughter is in all state band in hilton coliseum at 730 pm on Saturday Nov. 19. With the football game at six, and not having been on campus in 15 years, Im going to need some parking help. Any ideas on the best way to find my way through the mess thats going to be parking?

If you go early enough you can park at Lied and short walk down to Hilton

In past when there have been conflicts with football and all state they have used the MWL and Lied lots for All-State. If that’s too far as suggested you can buy a football parking pass for your desired lot.

Wouldn’t he just be able to find an open spot in any of the lots after kickoff at 6? The only thing I would avoid is getting there right around halftime.

No, they have people at the entrances the whole game.
Which entrances, because that’s not been my experience the couple of times I’ve been late this year due to youth sports. I have a pass, but have been able to park about anywhere I want including the S lots.

Congrats. My son is in the Band also. We have season tickets so we have a C4 pass. So good luck, no solutions but should be a great concert.

We got an email this morning from the Iowa All State Music Festival and all lots surrounding Hilton will be open at 6:05pm. Any open spots are first come first served for Concert Spectators.

Anywhere on the road in the neighborhoods just west of Beach. $40 ticket if you end up on the wrong side of the rode but nice and close. Might need to get there a little early but I don't expect a huge crowd so there should be some spots.

well too late...i found a friend of mine with season tickets wasnt going to the game. I paid for his spot. oh well.


Well then, it seems that you should show up a little early and get your money's worth for parking in a tailgate lot!
