GARDEN CITY, Idaho (KBOI) - Garden city is expecting a flood of people to hit the Boise Music Festival at the fair grounds on Saturday. Garden City police has added ten officers to the normal patrol outside the fair grounds. They say they will be working traffic and looking for the usual event problems like parking and dui's. They also want people to use crosswalks instead of Jaywalking.
Garden City Police says that several businesses have signs already posted warning that they may be towed for parking in business lots. They say Fred Myer and Starbucks have already got the word out. "Those are probably the two major ones because they are closest to the venue. Then you have Dairy Queen down the street, the Bingo parlor, Shorty's bar. You need to look for the signs that say for customers only, means for their customers not for Boise Music Festival. Sgt Blair Brannan said from Garden City Police.
The Boise Music festival starts at 10 am and goes for 12 hours to 10 pm. Garden City Police says with all the traffic in the area , they recommend concert goers use the free shuttles from the Home Depot in Eagle and downtown Boise on Front street.
