PARKING FOR THE AIDS WALK MIAMI EVENT
If you have ever visited the City of Miami Beach on a
weekend or for a special event and tried to park your car in a city
owned garage, chances are you were asked to pay a flat rate for the
day. But did you know you can pay hourly instead for up to 8 hours? You
The City of Miami Beach recognizes AIDS Walk Miami as a special event
and increases the parking rates on that day at their garages. This
usually fits most events without a problem but when you are only
spending 3-4 hours on the beach to attend the Walk, you might want to
consider paying by the hour.
When you park your car in a city owned / operated garage facility, let
the attendant know you are only there for a few hours and wish to pay
by the hour. If you plan to stay on the beach longer than 8 hours, you
might want to consider paying the flat rate to cover you for the day.
The parking garage of choice for the AIDS Walk fundraiser is located at
17th Street and Convention Center Drive and is the closest to the Miami
Beach Convention Center - Hall C entrance, Lincoln Road and many other
The 5 story parking garage facility can accommodate up to 1460 vehicles
and is open 24 hours a day. For more information, please visit the City
of Miami Beach Parking Department's web site - click here
