May Market parking

On May 10, I drove with three friends to the May Market at Phipps Conservatory. We arrived late morning. Finding no metered parking, we parked curbside beyond cars in metered parking on 1 Schenley Drive. I did put my license number and quarters in the closest parking meter and hoped that because of the event we might be allowed to park in a no parking area. I got a ticket and it is paid.

This is my quandary. If there is not adequate metered parking available, what alternatives do I have? From a practical standpoint we can walk only so far with heavy plants and purchases. After all, it is a market.

My friends and I suggest that for this market people should be allowed to park curbside in areas designated as no parking. May Market is a spring ritual that draws large crowds. Why discourage people who wish to attend?
