Parking is/should be free, but it is such a HUGE event that unknown where some may end up as I heard somebody last year did pay for parking but unknown where they were parking...
Dallas Market Hall
2200 North Stemmons Freeway
Dallas, TX 75207
Last year I remember coming off highway, circling entire building until I came across trucks with aquarium sides, parking by them and because early morning I could short cut thru loading docks, across entire event floor to front registration - this will ONLY work early morning. It also worked Friday/today afternoon BEFORE event, so this is my personal parking plan both days this weekend (and most of the reason why I plan such early arrival each day! Most morning volunteers will be targeting 8:30am, but I'm trying to be there by 8am to make sure there is space back there so if I need my car, I can get to my car without going blocks away.)
THANK YOU WONDERFUL VOLUNTEERS!!! You helped make Aquashella a wonderful experience for so many (and you all seemed to have a lot of fun, too)! Your hobby club appreciates you so very much!! (hearts) (hugs)
Some of volunteers heard yesterday from Aquashella staff, <drum roll> Dallas Market Hall staff said they've never had an event that large get so many people into building so quickly. Facility security told Secretary Lisa @Fish Think Pink they estimate other events normally take another two hours (MORE!) to get people into building. Your Aquashella event kept people smiling, lines moving and building guards never saw anything like this event == YOU ROCK!!!
While they sold completely out, they stayed within fire codes and Aquashella didn't turn anyone away.
With so many having such great experiences this weekend, do you think it may be even larger next year?!
