Front-row parking at Howard Wood Field is hard to come by when thousands of people want to see their high school play some football.
Most everyone at the Presidents' Bowl prepared for the reality of parking far away and walking to get a good seat for the games.
"We knew there would be some problems parking, so we thought we can walk, we've got good legs, so we'll park a little further away," Patty Peters said.
For Peters, there was more strategy in her parking choice.
"When we want to go, we'll be able to get out of here a little bit easier," Peters said.
April McNally and Misty Whitney arrived to cheer on Lincoln against O'Gorman and were generally impressed with the way parking worked out.
"I think it's ok. They have signs, you know, ' Parking Here,' and people directing, so that was nice," Whitney said.
"They have a lane blocked off, so pedestrians can walk without traffic, I think it's gone really smoothly," McNally said.
Construction across the street had people like Chad Porter planning ahead.
"Well, I just knew that there was construction going on and I didn't expect to find a spot very close, so we just immediately went to a side street just to park," Porter said.
A free shuttle option was provided a year ago, but not this year, something many thought was still needed.
"I think it was a good move. It's a good way to manage moving a lot of people," Porter said.
"There are an awful lot of grandmas and grandpas out there who can't walk very far. In this day and age, I think shuttles would be great," Peters said.
Parking here at the Presidents' Bowl is less than ideal, but people here seem to be taking it in stride, coming in enough time knowing they'll be parking far enough away.
"I don't mind a nice walk before an event. I think walking is good for us, and I think any chance any of us can get we should take a little more time to take a good walk," Porter said.
Many took that walk, so they could cheer their team on to victory.
