Tempe Festival of the Arts: Fri-Sun April 5-7, 2013

I went to this "festival" last November. It is held twice a year. Definitely worth it. We park in the US Airways garage.....there are other places to park. Map on website showing parking places. Not sure if any others are free...I sort of doubt it.

I always take the light rail without worrying about parking or having a beer.

I'm in Mesa. It then becomes an issue since I'd have to DRIVE to the light rail anyway. I know there is parking at the terminus in Mesa. just dont know how safe it is to leave car.

As a side note how do you get tickets for the light rail? I think I can (as a senior) ride for $1. Are there fare boxes on station platforms. I am clueless. Never ridden public transit in AZ. I know the light Rail stops at Mill Ave right near US Airways Parking Garage.

I also drive to a "park and ride" place when we go to a game or go to Tempe and have never had any problem with safety. There are several ticket machines on every platform and are very user friendly: valleymetro.org/sales_locations/fare_vending…

Thank you for posting the dates to remind everyone. My wife and I are big fans and do a lot of our holiday shopping at the fall event, but I prefer the Spring one.
