This weekend, like just about every weekend, parking will be a soul-sucking experience in downtown Orlando.

For the second weekend in a row, the City of Orlando has issued a transportation advisory for downtown. On Saturday, Nov. 18, people are advised to leave early to find parking and anticipate delays because of a few major events happening at the same time.

These events include:
- Florida Blue Florida Classic (Camping World Stadium)
- Savor the Night (Orlando City Hall)
- Orlando Magic Game (Amway Center)
- Beethoven & Mozart (Bob Carr Theater)
- La Boheme (Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts)

Instead of driving, event attendees are encouraged to take a Lyft, ride a Juice Bike or a Lynx bus, or just be prepared to crush their car into a small cube and pick it up afterward.
