The heavy rainfall in June makes it necessary to ban parking on the grass at Marshall Park for Ontario's July 4th festival this Saturday at Ontario Middle School.

The city's street department roped off the areas Wednesday, eliminating spaces for many cars but protecting the grounds from damage.   

Mayor Randy Hutchinson says parking has been added to Marshall Park, so the lost space should not have a major impact.

Repaving of the parking lot at Stingel Elementary School has just been completed. 

It's closed for now, but should be open for the festival.

The mayor suggests finding a place to park where you can, provided you're not in someone's yard, or blocking traffic.

He urges festival-goers to arrive early to find a place to park, and be prepared to wait as traffic leaves after the fireworks.

The Ontario Growth Association hosts a classic car show Friday night, with the festival all day Saturday.
