Tampa, Florida -- Lightning fans are advising fans to expect a longer than usual commute to the Bolts game on Saturday due to the Gasparilla invasion parade

Fans that pre-purchase parking will be allowed to begin accessing the lots beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday. However, fans will not be able to leave and re-enter the lot without paying again. Individuals looking to pre-purchase parking must do so before 11:59 p.m. on Friday, January 24.
