Here are a few parking reminders before heading out to Fourth on the Brazos this Monday at Touchdown Alley!

– Arrive Early ~ This year the gates open at 5 and fireworks are at 9:15. Avoid the annual mad dash just before the fireworks by leaving a little early.

– Beware of I-35 ~ Due to construction closures, we expect a back up on I-35. Come to the event via La Salle Ave or MLK.

– Parking Options ~ If you arrive before 7:30, there should be plenty of parking at the stadium. Parking options also include the Ferrell Center and the Dutton Street Parking Garage.

– Take the Shuttle ~ Waco Transit will run a free shuttle from the East Campus Parking Garage (3rd and Daughtery. to the Law School. ***Please note that riders must walk across the river via the Pedestrian Bridge to access the event site at Touchdown Alley.

– Handicap Parking ~ Vehicles with vaild tags can utilize Lot 4.

    Where can We go to see the fireworks from the car –just to go get a spot see it and leave- not get in a traffic jam- not get into a crowd- just see from a distance.?

    Are dogs allowed in this event?

      Good morning! I think dogs on a leash would be allowed, but are’t encouraged as most dogs would be frightened by the crowd and fireworks. If you do bring your furry friend, make sure to bring some water to keep them hydrated.
