Where's the FREE Parking?
The hub of the Bohemia Mining Days Festival is Coiner Park, with the carnival set up in Bohemia Park (corner Main & South 10th Street). Responding to requests for providing close-in parking for people with handicapped placards we have restricted the west parking lot (next to the basketball court) to BMD Staff and Handicapped Permit Holders only.
This year we have the BMD Express Train to move people from the free parking lots in the Historic Downtown District to the other major venues in Coiner and Bohemia Parks. The train operates on Friday from 1:30 - 5:30 p.m. and on Saturday from Noon - 6 p.m.with stops at All America City Square, Coiner Park, Bohemia Park, Trinity Lutheran Church (Sixth St. & Quincy Ave) for Saturday's Chicken BBQ and on Adams Ave. and Sixth Street on Friday and Saturday for a closer walk to the Presbyterian Church Quilt Show and Ice Cream Social on Friday and is a short walk to the Dr. Snapp House via the Swinging Bridge for its open house on Saturday from Noon - 4 p.m..
