Sepctator parking on the Regatta grounds is very limited. There is parking available just north of Y Blvd at the entrance to Nicholas Conservatory. If you are traveling south on N. 2nd St (U.S. 251) watch for the Regatta Parking sign at the corner of Ethel and N. 2nd. This parking lot is a short walk - along the river - to the Regatta grounds.
