Crowds In Jackson Will Pose Challenges

July 3, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Town of Jackson No Comments
Temporary No Parking

All the activities in Jackson for Independence Day will certainly attract crowds to town – and that, says Lieutenant Cole Nethercott of the Jackson Police Department, will bring with it some challenges.  Not the least of those will be traffic and parking.  He advises there will be parking closures in the areas of the parade, Snow King where the concerts and fireworks are taking place, and around the square for the breakfast.  He encourages drivers should use the public parking lots and areas outside the events. Nethercott says after the fireworks, it is actually faster to walk or take a bicycle to locations around town.  START will offer a free shuttle bus from the Snow King Events Center to downtown after the fireworks providing yet another alternative.  Another concern, says Nethercott is the illegal use of fireworks.  However, he says public intoxication and driving back home after over imbibing are also concerns. Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks also remind visitors that fireworks are prohibited within all national parks.
