Where to Park During Thanksgiving Turkey Trot in Lynchburg

Lynchburg, VA - The Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot will shut down several roads in downtown Lynchburg.

That has people living on streets like Commerce concerned about where to park their car.

They'll be no charge and no parking tag to park in any lots on Church and Clay Streets. Residents can also park in the Midtown Parking Deck, the Holiday Inn and Suntrust lot.

It might be a little inconvenient, but for the city events like the Turkey Trot help downtown.

"It helps to bring publicity downtown, to show people how our downtown has grown, and it introduces people to the shops and the businesses downtown," said Sharon Brown, special events coordinator.
