Navigating the North Side from Festplatz to Main Street

- Head south on Main Street to loop around to make your way down to Wells Fargo Festplatz. Along this pathway the street will be closed, and there are also sidewalks on both sides.
- Ohio Road is another option, but is very steep and can be very congested with people, and is therefore not the most accessible option.
