Parking Options for PiratePalooza

Parking options for the City of Decatur, from lots to decks.

People often say to me, they say, “Captain, could you please climb down off of my table whilst I am eating my dinner,” which is a perfectly reasonable request. Other times they simply ask me for the best parking options when attending my world famous PiratePalooza™ Pubcrawl & Pubsing.

On those occasions I simply tell them “Have a look at this map!”, which is likely to be the best advice you’ll get from me all month. This high resolution map (PDF format – approximately 824k download) was created by the City of Decatarrrr around 2016, so some details may be vary when you arrive in the town.

Some of the central parking lots are pay lots that require you to pay first.


DeKalb County Courthouse Parking Deck

One of the best places you can park (because it’s free on weekends and after 6pm) is the DeKalb County Courthouse Parking Deck, located at the intersection of Commerce Drive and West Trinity Place. The entrance is on the southeast corner of the deck. Here is a link to the location on Google Maps.

Observe Parking Restrictions

Please obey any and all signs that indicate the presence of parking restrictions, as “Invading the City of Decatarrrr” is not considered a valid excuse for parking your buggy in the middle of the street (anymore).

Our final stop, Communion, is valet-only and does not offer all day parking.

It’s okay to park in the lot next door to Communion as long as you do not park next to the building – those spaces are reserved for tenants of the building, please help us ensure that we retain their good will!

Street parking is available outside the final stop, but spaces are limited.


Don’t Leave Treasure!

As always, be sure to take your valuables with you to avoid having your car broken into by pirates!!
