To avoid any parking frustration, Leucadia 101 will provide an eco shuttle that runs on biofuel which will transport attendees from the upper parking lot at City Hall (505 S. Vulcan) to Leucadia and will drop off riders in the heart of the event.  The shuttle will be running throughout the night to bring guests back to City Hall. The last pick up will be 8:55 so plan accordingly . We also encourage the public to bike and walk to the event. Additional safety measures will be in place to encourage car traffic to be extra vigilant for pedestrians on this lively night. Take a stroll through Leucadia and check out what the Main Street has to offer.
