What is the cost?
Registration is free.
What about parking?
The Allen County War Memorial Coliseum is a city building, which means that they charge for parking. Parking is $6.00 per entry for cars, van, pickup trucks, and motorcycles. The cost for RVs, straight trucks, and semi-trucks is $18 per entry. This is an entry fee; if you stay in the parking lot you will not need to pay it again.
Memorial Coliseum offers 5,500 on-premises spaces in a lighted asphalt parking lot. You may stay overnight in the parking lot. You can arrive as early as Thursday to stay overnight, but you need to leave the parking lot by Sunday morning.
