Hi Locals

I picked up my ferry tix today for my trip to STJ in the morning for the parade.
I noticed that there are 2 parking lots now (one $10/day with shuttle and the other $5 at the school down the road). Is it OK
to park on the side of the road past Duffy's? I noticed quite a few they tow? I remember when we could park next
to the Mangrove...

Trying to save some cash...

Spend the $5 -support the school - and relieve the towing ticketing worries! - really one less cocktail is all. Happy Carnival

yes, the five bucks should not make or break you. If it does than you should not be here. The school is 5 and goes to a great cause. There are things bigger than yourself.

whoah! I have no problem spending $5, and I did park there today. When I first asked the question, I didn't even know it was
fundraiser for the HS. I'm a teacher and all for fund raising. No hating on this thread! 😉 (sucks teeth)

No worries, elkenhausen! billd for some reason tends to get feisty and throws out nasties which many of us read and go, "aargh!!!"

Hope you had a great time at carneeval! Cheers!
