Parking downtown avoids any congestion on campus, and allows those attending the theater to also take in the beautiful sights downtown," said Sam Patterson, Boise State's Director of Transportation, Parking and Safety Systems.
"Folks can enjoy an early or late lunch, browse through shops, and get to and from the Morrison Center for free. The discounted all-day parking is just another reason Thursday will be a truly amazing day of theater and enjoyment for those fortunate enough to see this early performance of The Lion King," said Lynn Hightower of the Downtown Boise Association.
