The following is a news release from the Florence PDRTA:

To help alleviate traffic congestion and parking struggles for the Pecan Festival this Saturday, PDRTA will again be offering free Park and Ride shuttle bus services to the public from four locations around Florence.  Bus operations will start at 10:30 AM and run until 7:30 PM and operate at least every 20 minutes from each of the following locations.

FLORENCE MALL

The public can park at the David McLeod Blvd entrance to the Piggly Wiggly store, (1945 W. Palmetto St). where shuttle buses will transport people to / from the Festival.

FORMER WINN DIXIE on W. EVANS ST

The vacant former Winn Dixie parking lot at the corner of W. Evans and S. Cashua Sts. (124 S. Cashua St.) will be used for park and ride services.

HALLMARK SQ. SHOPPING CENTER  ON S. IRBY ST.

The public can park and access free shuttle buses to the Festival in front of the Parrott’s Furniture Store on the S. Irby St. side of the parking lot, across the street from Auto Zone. (953 S. Irby St.)

FLORENCE AIRPORT

Free shuttle service will operate from the field just east of the Florence Airport entrance on E. Palmetto St. (The Airport address is 2100 Terminal Dr.)

All locations will be highlighted by large balloon banners and signs.  Designated drop off / pick up locations will be located near the Festival perimeters for easy walking access to the event.  PDRTA Executive Director Chuck MacNeil hopes that the public will take advantage of this continuing festival service feature.  “We are thrilled to again be a part of this fantastic event in Downtown Florence and appreciate the support of the Florence Downtown Development Corporation, George Jebaily and the Festival Organizing Committee, and the sponsorship of QVC to help us provide the service.  We encourage festival goers to take advantage of this free service and avoid the traffic congestion and search for precious parking downtown.  It is a much better way to get in and out of the festival and enhance the fun experience of the day.”
