The Indiana Ice have advised fans that parking at the garages adjacent to Pan Am Pavilion will be limited this weekend due to the National Rifle Association national convention taking place across the street at the Indiana Convention Center.
The Ice have no control over the situation, as the NRA national convention was already scheduled and is expected to bring large crowds into downtown over the weekend -- including Friday and Saturday evenings, when the Ice and Dubuque Fighting Saints are scheduled to play the first two games of their USHL Eastern Conference Final series at Pan Am Pavilion. The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. for both games.
For those who are able to get spaces in the Pan Am garage, the $5 parking vouchers will be available and usable, but are not redeemable at other sites. There are a number of garages in the area -- including the garage at Circle Centre Mall across the street from Pan Am Pavilion. Some may be charging event rates.
Fans headed to the games need to plan extra time to get to the Pan Am Pavilion. Tickets are on sale for $15 at the Ice office (317-925-4423, indianaice.com).
To assist with finding parking, the Ice have provided a parking map that is available here.
