Default Parking for Parade

I am planning on going to the Parade tomorrow. Could anyone tell me where I should park. Is there a parking garage close to where the parade is or any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'll be coming through Steubenville and will probably take the tunnels to Pittsburgh.

I would park at Station Square and walk across the Smithfield St. Bridge (kinda cold), or take the T (right across from the bridge) to the Gateway station (closest to Point Park).

This way you would avoid parking in town and the walk won't be too far. Parking in town might be tough. Either way, you're gonna have some walking to do. If you drive in and get off by the Hilton, there's a Gateway garage there, but I don't know how full it will be, plus it's expensive. If you do park downtown, the Pittsburgh Parking Authority garages are cheaper.

Click on map for locations.

I don't know if the Gateway Clipper fleet is running shuttles from Station Square. This would be great.

Good Luck and have a blast!!!

The victory parade -- complete with bands from several local high schools -- is scheduled to get underway at 11am at Mellon Arena.

The procession will continue down Centre Avenue to Sixth Avenue and onto Fifth Avenue. From there, the route will continue onto Liberty Avenue and wrap up at Gateway Center.

After the parade, a rally is planned between the Hilton Hotel and the State Office Building.

I ended up parking at the North Shore. It was only 5 bucks and a walk to the Point via the Fort Duquesne bridge.

Thankfully a friend dropped me off so I didn't have to find a place to park. I heard a lot of people say it took them a long while to find a spot.
