Special Parking and Navigation on Saturday, Dec. 7
Van Buren’s “Jingle and Mingle” festival is December 7, from 10am-8pm.
Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic, from the 700 block to the 400 block. The King Opera House is on the corner of 5th Street and Main.
The closest parking area is behind/Northeast of the KOH. To access this lot on Saturday, use Washington Street behind the theatre.
If you are coming from the North (I-40/North Van Buren), take the first right (Knox St) after coming down Fayetteville Road/Log Town Hill. Then take a slight left onto Washington, then another slight left to go under the train bridge and enter the parking area.
If you are arriving from the East (Midland Bridge/Broadway St.), take 4th Street past the Crawford County Courthouse, and continue across to Washington. Turn right, and go one block to reach the KOH parking lot.
If you are coming from the East (Hwy 64), you can either turn left onto Broadway and take 4th Street to the right, as outlined above. Or continue on through the stoplight, and turn left to get to Webster St. There are parking areas all along Webster. The closest parking is the lot between 5th and 6th streets, which is just one block across Main from the KOH.
