Tucson Meet Yourself normally covers four city blocks downtown for three days and features music, food, art and live performances.

Motorists near downtown should be on the lookout starting tonight as preparations begin for the annual Tucson Meet Yourself event this weekend.

At 6 p.m., North Stone Avenue will be closed from West Congress to West Alameda streets. Also, East Pennington Street will be closed from South Church to South Scott avenues. Both closures will last until midnight Sunday, Oct. 13.

North Church Avenue will be closed from West Pennington to West Alameda streets from 6 p.m. Wednesday until midnight Sunday.

Friday evening, North Church Avenue will be closed from West Alameda to West Congress streets until midnight Sunday.

City officials say 15,000 parking spaces are available in Downtown Tucson, according to an event news release. Motorists may find a spot in one of the 11 parking garages open during the event, including the Main Library Parking Garage.

Access for pedestrian and bicyclists will be open in and around the road closures, officials said.

Officials advise motorists to expect delays, watch for participants and the detour signs while traveling in the area.
