The show manager is aware of the residential communities surrounding the Stadium and is encouraging attendees riding motorcycles to use the highway rather than drive through the city.
Throughout this event, you may anticipate an increase in WMATA ridership at the Stadium-Armory Station as well as much greater than usual pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the area surrounding RFK Stadium.
