Other local events


Be prepared to go there early. About 80.000 tickets will be sold and there is a nearby shopping center, so there might be lots of traffic. You can park in the shopping center (hopefully) and you might be able to park near the site. This place is a building site, as they are building the O.Vision area there Hopefully that will not disturb the show and the arrival and departure in any way.
