ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- Cardinal fans Kevin and Brittani Wrigley are excited about this weekend`s World Series game including their newborn Grant Michael.  The infant might be sleeping through the game at the babysitters on Saturday, but mom and dad have a plan to maneuver through thousands of spectator`s downtown. Kevin says his wife has a reserved space so parking won`t be an issue.

"We`re going to do a little bit of bobbing and weaving and stuff like that. We`re fortunate she works downtown so she has a parking pass for a garage so we`ll park there," Wrigley said.

St. Louis City Treasurer Tishaura Jones says there are plenty of parking options, but it`s best to do your research. You can check the STL Downtown Partnership website for information before you head out. The city is also hosting a series of town halls about improving parking in the city. The first is scheduled for October 29th.

"Park in a surface lot that`s your safest bet and if you are going to park on the street make sure it`s at a meter, if not you could get a ticket.  We`re looking for public input as we work to improve our technology," said Jones.

Also remember you can face a $10.00 fine for expired meters on Saturday and meters are free all day on Sunday. It`s also a good idea to double check locks and store your valuables out of sight.

"Don`t worry about it just come down and experience it. It`s a once in a lifetime experience cardinals World Series baseball is amazing," Wrigley said.
