All traffic will enter the DHS campus from Noroton Avenue. High School Lane and Nutmeg Lane will be closed to incoming traffic. Spectators are strongly urged to carpool.

Due to the large number of vehicles expected, parking regulations and designated tow away zones will be strictly enforced. A handicap permit is required to park in the limited handicap parking spaces available. When parking capacity has been reached, Noroton Avenue extension will be closed to vehicular traffic.
