Frontier Fiesta will have impact on parking
 
Itís that time of year again for Frontier Fiesta, the student-run and student-led festival held on campus to promote education, community and scholarships. The annual event is a diverse showcase for the talents of the University of Houston student body.

During the festival, a piece of the campus is turned into a fully functional town called "Fiesta City." There will be live concerts, variety shows by student organizations, carnival booths, multicultural performances, a barbecue cookoff and a baking competition.

Please be aware that this event will have an impact on parking.

This year, it will be held on the east side of campus in parking lots 20C and 20A. As a result, some spaces will not be available in the two weeks leading up to the event. Starting March 8, part of Lot 20C will be closed until March 24. Then on March 15, additional spaces in 20C will be unavailable. The biggest impact will be felt March 19, when the remainder of the spaces in Lot 20C and a portion of the adjacent Lot 20A will be closed.

See the map below to get a better understanding of the lot closures.

We encourage everyone to have a parking plan in advance. Parkers should take advantage of the parking at the Energy Research Park and use the Cougar Line free shuttle service to get to campus. To obtain estimated shuttle arrival times, use Cougar Trax on your smart phone at www.uh.edu/cougartraxmobile. For a larger, more detailed map and more information, users can access the non-mobile site on their laptops or computers at www.uh.edu/cougartraxpublic .

You should also consider riding public transportation or carpooling with a friend. For more parking tips and alternatives, visit the Parking website. Additional information about Frontier Fiesta, including its history, can be found on the Frontier Fiesta website.
