PARKING: A $10 parking pass was available for Horton Plaza OR the NBC garage. As I was not certain I was going to make it on time, I chanced Horton Plaza and was delighted with the validation and pass.

Parking in the parking structure can be a bit confusing. Fortunately found a security guard. When I told him where I thought I had parked, he explained there was another area with similar markings and then directed me there. Also the parking structure has recently reduced hours of free validated parking from 3 or 4 hours to one. So the next time you drive to this venue and plan to park in the structure, verify if the performance provides parking validation for the entire duration of the show.
