Parking for Friday's Football Game

With Friday night being Halloween and a home football game for the Firebirds, the school district is joining the City of Kettering in helping to spread the word that there will be limited street parking in the neighborhoods around the stadium the evening of October 31st, and football fans are encouraged to park at Fairmont High School, the Kettering Government Center or Town & Country Shopping Center for the game.

In an effort to keep all of our little ghosts and goblins safe while they are trick-or-treating, street parking will be limited to one side on the streets that surround Roush Stadium, from Bromfield Rd. south to Stroop Road. Please help us get the word out to those who may be attending the game that there will be parking available at Fairmont, the Government Center and Town & Country...and all are just a short walk to the stadium.
