auto parking information
Due to the size of this tournament, and the number of
participants, the school lots must be used for school busses and
trucks only. Cars, SUVs, etc. will not be allowed in the school lot.

Car parking is suggested as follows:

Civic Center parking at Main and Yorktown
This is across the street from the stadium’s main entrance,
but some distance from the band’s busses. This is most
convenient for spectators. DO NOT PARK in spots with
restrictions (closest to Police Station) – you will get ticketed!
Cross Main St. at the corner.

Business Park at Main/Yorktown caddycorner from stadium
This is across from the Civic Center and Seacliff. Easy in and
out. Close to spectator entrance.

Street Parking

There is lots of parking available on the streets in the
neighborhood adjacent to the school. Expect 5 minutes of
walking, but an easy exit. There is also a small lot on
Yorktown next to the HBHS Baseball field.

Albertson’s/Seacliff Shopping Center at Main and Yorktown
DO NOT PARK HERE! This lot is across from the stadium,
but they may tow your vehicle. Please avoid this lot
