• Eagle Street between State Street and Park Avenue
• Park Avenue between Eagle Street and S. Swan Street


*sigh* Nobody can ever communicate these road closures clearly.

The Freihofer's Run website has a PDF with an incomplete list of road closings... they don't even mention when Madison is closed to traffic - only to parking.

So I emailed them and they told me the west part of Madison (S. Swan to Lark or New Scotland would be closed 7:30 - 2.

AOA's list shows that segment as closed from 9:30 - 1

APD (or whoever) puts up signs saying when the streets will be closed to parking... why don't they also list when they will be closed to all traffic?

I didn't notice that AOA's data was based on a PDF on the City's site. I'm more inclined to believe the City than the event organizers in this case.

Do something at a state park maybe? We had our anniversary at Thacher Park. There are a lot of logistics when you do it that way, but it's a beautiful view, there is a pavilion so you don't need a tent, and they have bathrooms so you don't need to rent potties.
