I love our location in Downtown Raleigh, but we do have to deal often with downtown events like races, festivals, concerts, and their associated street closings. This weekend we have Artsplosure, which closes down everything around Moore Square. Hargett St. is still open, so Artsplosure won't affect your commute too much. It's very common for the parking decks to charge for parking on weekends with special events, so you may want to budget either extra cash, or extra time to find free parking. And after class why not check out the festival?
