Ballet Folklórico De Antioquia, Colombia
- March 3, 2012 at 8:00 pm
There is a concert at the Patriot Center that begins at 8:00 PM, Saturday evening that may cause traffic delays & limited parking for those attending the Ballet Folklorico de Antioquia, Colombia performance.
This impacts most directly those patrons who park in Lot K. Lot K is also heavily used by Patriot Center patrons.
We encourage you to plan to come to campus early. Take this opportunity to enjoy the Pre-Performance Discussion at 7:15 PM featuring Lina Botero (a former dancer with the company) on Grand Tier III, or simply enjoy a pre-performance beverage from our concessions bars in the Concert Hall lobby.
