Mayor Brown Offers Tips For a Great July 4th Holiday Parking Experience in Downtown Buffalo

July 4th presser 2019

Buffalo, NY – The Independence Day holiday weekend is here, marking the start of a jam-packed and festive weekend. In an effort to communicate the best way to get around for those city residents and visitors who plan to attend the July 4th ‘Parade of Sail’, featuring 12 historic, majestic tall ships, or watch the official 10 pm Buffalo Fireworks display at Canalside , Mayor Byron W. Brown announced an enhanced traffic/ parking plan to ensure a friendly and efficient experience for residents and visitors to Downtown Buffalo. “This is a big opportunity for Buffalo to once again showcase our beautiful City,” said Mayor Brown. “For the first time in more than 100 years, the City of Buffalo will host a fleet of tall ships during the 4th of July holiday weekend, drawing tens of thousands of people to our waterfront. We are ready, as always, to host a world class cultural event in our community.”


As part of the enhanced plan, Mayor Brown encouraged motorists to park East of Main Street or North of Scott Street, and access public transportation. He also encouraged motorists to park on City streets in the Central Business District or park in City-owned parking facilities, located within walking distance of the light-rail on Main Street.
