Saranac Thursdays is all fine and good every year, except for one thing: parking is usually a PAIN. This year parking will be even more difficult even if you arrive early because our favorite go-to parking lot is completely off limits for what looks like the next year or so and maybe even for good.

A couple of years ago, we reported that the old Globe Mills building was going to be converted into apartments and office space and it looks that that project is finally picking up speed as the parking lot that normally accomodated hundreds of us is now fenced off.

If you'd like some suggestions on alternative parking that isn't street-side, read more at the Utica OD HERE.
