LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- People heading to the Kentucky State Fair next month will have some new options for weekend parking, including one free lot.
That location is the Green Lot of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium off Floyd Street. The State Fair Board says shuttles will run continuously to the fair. Fair tickets can be purchased at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium or advance discount tickets can be presented before boarding the shuttle.
Another location is the new Five Dollar Lot on the site of the former Executive Inn Hotel. Shuttles will carry fairgoers to the pedestrian admission gate.
Each location will add several thousand parking spots available first come, first served, weekends only.
Parking at the Kentucky Exposition Center will remain $8 per vehicle. The fair runs from Aug. 15 to 25.
