Fayetteville Prepares For Razorback Gameday
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — Fayetteville is preparing for another Razorback gameday.
With the Texas State game being the first sold-out game of the season, parking will be limited on Saturday (Sept. 17). The City of Fayetteville is offering $5 dollar parking rate at the Spring Street Parking Deck. Drivers can enter and park for a flat fee of $5 from 2 p.m. through 6:30 p.m. The parking lot accepts cash only. The rate ensures parking through 2 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 18).
Fans can then hop on a University shuttle and ride for free to and from the game. Shuttles will stop in the passenger loading zone on the north side of the Walton Arts Center and drop off near Gate 1 of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Shuttle services begin at 2:30 p.m. and ends approximately two hours after the game ends.
Additional public parking is available throughout the Dickson Street Entertainment District at both hourly and daily rates.
Before the football game, fans can get an early glimpse of the 2017 Razorback baseball team at its intrasquad scrimmage. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. at Baum Stadium.
This weekend ends the first full week of team practice for the fall season as the Razorbacks prepare for the 2017 season to start in February. The baseball team will play its annual Fall World Series at Baum Stadium next month with dates still to be determined. Practices and scrimmages are open to the public throughout the fall.
To add entertainment inside of the stadium fireworks will be on display during the Razorback football game. The Fayetteville Fire Marshal’s Office and the State Fire Marshal have approved a fireworks permit at all University of Arkansas home football games.
Fireworks will be discharged at the beginning of the game when the Razorbacks run onto the field, during the national anthem, whenever the Razorbacks score and after a Razorback win.
The City of Fayetteville now publishes a media release regarding approved firework displays so that citizens can make accommodations for individuals and animals affected by displays.
