TAMPA. THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO NEED TO KEEP THIS IN MIND IF THEY ARE GOING IN OR OUT OF DOWNTOWN THIS WEEKEND. IT WILL BE A GOOD TIME IN DOWNTOWN TAMPA BUT IT’S GOING TO BRING A LOT OF PEOPLE AROUND 20,000 PEOPLE ARE EXPECTED TO COME OUT EACH NIGHT FOR THESE FREE CONCERTS. THAT MEANS VERY LIMITED PARKING AND SOME ROAD CLOSURES. THE BEST ADVICE FOR YOU IF YOU ARE COMING DOWN HERE IS TO GET HERE EARLY OR TRY AND CATCH A RIDE. Reporter: IT’S AN EXCITING TIME FOR TAMPA AND A BUSY ONE. WE’RE STILL SIX DAYS AWAY FROM KICKOFF AND PARKING IS ALREADY TIGHT. IF YOU PLAN ON COMING HERE TO SEE THE HEADLINERS, THIS PARKING GARAGE BY CURTIS HIXSON WON’T BE A GO TO OPTION SINCE MANY EVENT STAFF PLAN ON PARKING THERE. BUT YOU HAVE A LOT OF OTHER CHOICES. THIS TRICKED OUT GOLF CART, THE DOWNTOWN OR, IS A FREE OPTION. THE IN TOWN OR WILL ALSO BE RUNNING MORE PROVIDING A GOOD ALTERNATIVE TO DRIVING. EVEN BUSINESSES PREPARING FOR THE MADNESS. GETTING OUR STAFF HERE IN ENOUGH TIME BECAUSE OF THE PARKING. Reporter: IT WILL BE CHAOS FOR EVERYONE BUT SOME ARE LOOKING ON THE BRIGHT SIDE. BIG THINGS LIKE THIS MAKE UP FOR THE SLOWER MONTHS IN THE SUMMER TIME. SO WE STOCK UP ON THIS AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF AS MUCH MONEY AS WE CAN GET OUT OF IT. SO WHEN TIMES ARE SLOW WE HAVE ENOUGH MONEY. Reporter: PEOPLE WHO WORK AND LIVE DOWN HERE DEALING WITH CROWDS TOO. JUST GOING TO COME TO WORK EVERY DAY. MAYBE TRY TO SHOW UP EARLIER. STAY A LITTLE LATER BUT FOR THE MOST PART I’VE GOT TO COME DOWN HERE AND WORK. Reporter: GETTING A CHANCE TO BE ON THE NATIONAL STAGE IS AN INCONVENIENCE FOR MANY. BUT MOST DON’T SEEM TO MIND. I’M A BIG ALABAMA FAN. SO IT’S WORTH IT. ROLL TIDE. Reporter: THERE’S GOING TO BE SOME ROAD CLOSURES AS WELL. BIG ONES TO LOOK OUT FOR ON KASHA STREET AND ASHLEY DRIVE. WE HAVE A FULL LIST OF THOSE CLOSURES RIGHT NOW ONLINE AT WFLA.COM. KEITH AND STACIE? PARKING IS GOING TO BE BAD FOR THE CONCERTS. WHAT’S IT GOING TO BE LIKE FOR THE PEOPLE GOING TO THE GAME? Reporter: THAT’S GOING TO BE VERY EXPENSIVE. ORGANIZERS ARE RECOMMENDING IF YOU ARE HEADING DOWN TO THE GAME, TO BUY A PARKING PASS IN ADVANCE THAT’S GOING TO BE A HUGE MONEYMAKER. $50 JUST TO PARK ONE CAR. IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO SAVE EXTRA MONEY PERHAPS AN UBER OR LYFT MIGHT BE A BETTER OPTION HERE. YOU KNOW YOU ARE SHELLING
