Parking lots on Ocean Avenue are typically free this time of year, but we will be monitoring the situation in case that changes. The closest lot is located on 4th Ave. and Ocean Ave. near the Wonder Bar. There is another lot between 2nd & 3rd Ave. and Ocean Avenue, across from the Silverball Museum. PLEASE NOTE: Metered parking on Ocean Ave. and near the boardwalk have rates of $2 per hour and need to be renewed after 3 hours. There is a very convenient Asbury Park Parking app that allows you to add to your parking time remotely.
This is a rain or shine event! But, don’t worry….Convention Hall is always warm and dry! And, remember that it’s always a few degrees cooler at the shore. Dress in layers that feel the most comfortable to you while running or walking.
