This month of August is no different, with events happening every week. Check out some of the more notable events happening at the Pennsylvania Convention Center this month and find out how we can help get you parked!


American IdolAmerican Idol Tryouts:

Congratulations. You’re going to Hollywood,” could be the words uttered to a lucky Philadelphian as American Idol holds try-outs on August 15 and 16. So get practicing to make sure you don’t wind up on the American Idol Blooper Reel. Good luck to those participating!


Magic vs YuGiOhMagic The Gathering & Yu-Gi-Oh Tournament:

Everyone has those awful memories of playing against your crazy neighbor who makes up a new rule every time it’s their turn, or when your older brother stole your Blue-Eyes White Dragon and sold it to buy a soda from the corner store. Well, maybe not everyone, but now you have the chance to compete in a fair environment with real judges! Prep your decks. The time for schooling noobs and getting revenge on the guy whose mom buys him every card in the deck is coming!

That’s right: The Pennsylvania Convention Center is holding both Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic the Gathering tournaments from August 21 to 23, so get crackin’ on your battle strategies!

While you’re prepping your decks and practicing in front of the mirror, make sure to plan ahead in finding parking. Luckily, our  Auto-Park at Gallery Mall is only a stone’s throw away from the Convention Center. And if that doesn’t work for you, our parking locator can get you squared away!

If you have any questions, or need help getting parked, reach out to us on Twitter or Facebook!
