Steve Tieber, co-owner of the pub located at 300 Wayne Ave. in the Oregon District, gives tips on where to park in the video above.
Val Beerbower of the Downtown Dayton Partnership urges St. Patrick’s Day revelers to take advantage of parking lots in and around the Oregon District, including the Holy Trinity Church lot, 272 Bainbridge St., Dayton.
There is also street parking and paid lots on and off Wayne Avenue and elsewhere in the Oregon District.
“It would be super swell if people don't park in the residential neighborhood,” Beerbower said.
Many residents, some of whom are elderly, do not have off street parking and use spots in front of their homes.
Beerbower said there will also be spaces in the Oregon District Garage. Formerly known as the Convention Center Garage, the facility is a short distance from downtown and Oregon District bars and restaurants.
Hourly rates are $2 per hour with a maximum rate of $6 per day. Parking is $1 daily after 6 p.m.
Beerbower said those celebrating St. Patrick’s Day early on Saturday can use RTA’s Flyer to get between downtown and Oregon District establishment to bars and restaurants on or near Brown Street. The RTA Flyer does not run on Sunday. It runs 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday to Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to midnight.
On Sunday, a free shuttle will run between Flanagan’s Pub near the University of Dayton and the Dublin Pub will start at 10 a.m. and run every 30 minutes until midnight.
Wayne Avenue will be shut down from Fifth to Hugo beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday through midnight Sunday, according to Dayton police.
