No it’s not safe at all.. Massillon people all carry guns and knives and will destroy anybody that attempts to enter the stadium.I looked at a couple recent posts but could not find much about parking for the games this weekend
Is there enough?
How early should we plan to arrive for the Thursday game? I am sure that place will be full with Massillon people
Is it safe?
That's all well and good, but I combed the OHSAA website and could find no link or instructions that would enable a person to buy one of these VIP Parking Passes, not that I'm looking to buy one.From OHSAA Site:
Throughout championship weekend, numerous public parking options will be available (please click the Public Parking Map link). There will be parking lots adjacent to Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium (set GPS to 1750 Clarendon Avenue NW, Canton, OH 44708). If those parking lots are full there are numerous homes in the neighborhood that will be selling parking to cars and RVs. There will also be free parking at Stadium Park Lot (please reference the Public Parking Map link for location). Fans can also purchase a VIP Parking Pass for $70 that will guarantee a spot (no RVs) in an exclusive lot near the Symphony Gate entrance to Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. This VIP Parking Pass is good for all seven games.
As mentioned in the parking info, it's at their discretion. Those who allow parking will usually have signs posted in their yards and will be on hand to take your money.
I'm just referring to the parking. With the crowd Massillon will send parking may be a challenge. The rest of the weekend won't be ideal but not as bad.I just get the impression on here at least that Ohio does not wrong, when it comes to how they do things.
The Church of the Covenant at 3014 Fulton Dr NW, has been known to allow RV parking for a small donation. You may want to contact them. They used to reserve some spots back in the day.
I seriously doubt the OHSAA has any control over the parking situation. That would seem to fall into the hands of other entities (Hall of Fame, Canton City Schools, City of Canton, Local residents who are offering up their yards for parking, etc.).So...I emailed the OHSAA about what way to come in if you have a VIP pass, which I do, and the dude told me that it is the same as Lot A. This obviously doesn't make sense considering everything online says that the VIP will be an exclusive lot by the Symphony Gate...which I assume is the small lot across Blake St. from parking lot A.
I will be annoyed if they are putting the VIP pass cars in the same lot as everyone else. I will be even more annoyed if they fill lot A and try to make us park in the mud pit like last year (we didn't have a parking pass last year, but we did have Handicap pass due to one of the older gentlemen in the group...we were pretty upset that we had to park that far away in a field full of mud...our older guy AND THE SUV almost didn't make it).
So either this guy didn't know anything or the OHSAA is making a bigger mess again. I wouldn't be shocked either way.
