Parking was an absolutely horrific experience at Summerfest last night.
Some people with prepaid parking were told all lots were full. I witnessed some major meltdowns. A lot of yelling. I could understand them being upset. If I had purchased a space and was told I couldn't park, I would have been ticked off, too.
I was ticked off because it was such a royal mess-- waiting in lines, inching along, being directed that parking was ahead when it wasn't. Luckily for us, a parking attendant at a lot that was full managed to squeeze us in a space. A miracle!
After the parking nightmare was resolved, the rest of the night was fantastic.
