Between A Music Festival And Parade, Expect Road Closures Downtown Orlando

A map of this weekend's road closures via the City of Orlando website.

Between a music festival and Veterans Day parade, it’s shaping up to be a busy weekend in downtown Orlando. 

Aside from the usual closures from the I-4 Ultimate and 408 construction, drivers should watch out around Camping World Stadium, the Amway Center and the Lake Eola and Thorton Park areas. 

You may have noticed around Camping World Stadium roads already have begun to shut down near Rio Grande Avenue and Church Street for the  Electric Daisy Carnival music festival. Most of these closures will continue through 7 a.m Tuesday. 

Near the Amway Center parts of Church Street, Pine Street and Division Avenue will be blocked off starting Friday afternoon for weekend events. 

On Saturday, the city of Orlando will celebrate Veterans Day with a parade near Lake Eola and Thornton Park. 

Even though most parking garages will be open, city leaders are reminding motorists there are other ways to get to your events like SunRail, Camping World Shuttle and two RideShare hubs.
