Pax is Back At BCEC & St. Patrick's Festivial at Harpoon This Weekend

The gaming convention and expo, PAX East, will be held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center March 6th through March 8, 2015.



Due to the large number of attendees, there will be a need for off-site parking during this event. In the event both the South Lot and the North Jetty fills, attendees will be directed to the Channel Center Garage, across the South Boston Bypass Road from the South Lot. This garage will charge the same rate of $15 as the South Lot and North Jetty. The Channel Center Garage cannot accommodate oversized vehicles. A complimentary shuttle will begin running once there are attendees being sent to the Channel Center Garage. If all other parking options are used up, attendees will be directed to the Seaport Garage located adjacent to the Seaport Hotel

The MCCA will employ portable variable message signs in the area around the BCEC as well as Boston Police and State Police to mitigate traffic around the BCEC and the Waterfront area.

Harpoon Brewery is hosting its annual St. Patrick’s Festival 2015 during the evening of Friday,March 6 from 5:30pm - 11:00pm and the Saturday, March 7 from 1pm - 7pm. Cover charge is $20. Several thousand more people are expected to come to the South Boston Waterfront for this event. While the event website explicitly tells attendees that there is no parking on site and that Harpoon Brewery will be providing shuttles from South Station, attendees may still attempt to drive in and find parking in the area. There will be much pedestrian activity in the South Boston Waterfront on account of the multiple events and this pedestrian activity might in turn slow down vehicular traffic.
