Parking Pass for Coaches, teams, family and fans
Parking passes for the Fair Grounds are $8, per entry--for example that if you pay for parking at 8 am, then leave and come back later the same day, you will have to pay an additional $8 for entry.
You can buy an ALL DAY pass or a MULTI-DAY pass after you first pay for gate admission. Upon entering the Expo Center, you must pay $8 and get your receipt. Bring your receipt into the lobby of South Wing A & B and see a Expo employee at a kiosk in the lobby. You will be able to use the receipt towards the purchase of the ALL DAY parking pass. You must have your receipt. The ALL DAY pass is $12.00 and you can come and go as much as you would like for that day.
Team registration will begin at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, July 15 and 7:00 am on Saturday, July 16 at the Expo Center, South Wing A & B. Coaches will have to pay the $8 fee Wednesday night and upon registering your teams, you will get the weekend parking pass to use after you register. One parking pass per team. Please be aware that you will have to pay the first time through and will not get a refund.
These are policies of the Expo Center, not those of Eddie Ford or the Tournament Organizers.
Travel Advisory – Driving to Louisville
It is an exciting time to be in Louisville, as Kentucky and Indiana are working jointly on one of the largest transportation projects in the country, The Ohio River Bridges Project. This investment in transportation infrastructure will build two bridges entering Kentucky, one on the East End and the other Downtown. It will also restructure the current Kennedy Bridge interchange downtown, locally called “spaghetti junction.”
What does this mean for travelers? While traffic will be flowing between the state lines of Indiana and Kentucky, please be prepared slow traffic and some detours when approaching Louisville from the North and South on Interstate 65. While it’s not expected this could also cause some delays for travelers coming into Louisville from the East and West on Interstate 64.
While we are working closely with the construction management team please be aware that with any major construction project plans can change frequently and with little time to react. For that reason we ask that you use the following web site for the latest information: http://kyinbridges.com/downtown-crossing. This site will also allow you to sign up for email and text alerts, which is a great way to stay informed.
This project will be ongoing through 2016.
