On the day of Jingle Bones 2019, the Santa Hustle race will be active downtown. There are two races (a 5K and half-marathon) that could complicate your arrival. Please review the course maps:
From the maps, it looks like everything is northwest. N. Illinois St. might be closed, but N. Pennsylvania St. and E. Washington St are both open. So, please plan to approach the ArtsGarden from the East or South, not West or North.
The 5K should be over long before our registration time (11:00 AM). The half-marathon should have cleared the immediate area of the Artsgarden and Barnes and Thornburg by registration time, but some congestion might remain.
If you are delayed, don't worry. It will all work out.
