Due to the economic conditions our nation has experienced this past year, it has been decided to reduce admission prices by 50% to ensure every family is able to join in the festivities.

Parking for the festival is $5/vehicle and there are spaces for more than 3,000 automobiles. Free shuttle buses take you to the festival entrance from lots A and C. Many local businesses now sell parking spaces near to the EYES TO THE SKIES festival for more than $5. Please understand that these lots are not connected with the Eyes to the Skies Festival. If you use them, you will still have to pay admission to the gate. Also, you will need to walk to the gate where as if you use the Official Eyes to the Skies parking lots, you will have a shuttle bus bring you to the festival and drop you back off at the lot you parked in. Exact change is appreciated.
Special on-site secured parking for motorcycles is available for $10.00. To reach the parking site, take Yackley Avenue to Ohio Street, turn east and follow staff directions to the site. Please pay attendant.
Handicapped accessible parking is available, but you must have handicapped license plates or a State of Illinois permit to qualify. To reach the handicapped parking, take Ogden Avenue to Yackley Avenue. Go south on Yackley to Ohio Street, turn East where security personnel will direct you to the handicapped parking site.
