Thanks for those who have helped me with parking tips, but I'm still unsure of the Bumbershoot situation. On Sunday, Sept. 2, I will be ready to leave from the SEA-TAC airport in my rental car for the festival at about 10:30 am (my plane arrives at 9:45, so I can't start earlier). I will go straight to the festival. What should I do? It seems that at 10: 30 am it might be too late of a start to search for free parking on the street, especially since I don't know the city (but if not, please let me know). So, I'm searching various Web sites. Should I just park at Northgate and take a shuttle there? Westlake Center and take a monorail? In other words, which of these options (including others not mentioned) offer the greatest convenience, especially in terms of traveling to these parking places on the freeways which are sure to be congested? (One person suggested taking I-99 instead of I-5). What do you think? Please be specific in your directions. Thanks.
