Park Events' success depends upon preplanning and preparation done by the applicant. This page is created to help in the process of a successful event. Event Applications submitted less than the recommended ninety (90) days from the desired date of the event require an expedited review if submitted under the minimum sixty (60) days processing time per the LSMC 14.16C.065. Applications submitted under sixty (60) days are charged the Expediated Review fee in addition to the applicable Event Application fees. The Expedited Review fee must be paid at time of submittal and does not guarantee that your event will be permitted. This means completing the online application process, uploading a site plan and/or route plan (for events that travel through city streets) and responding to staff requests for additional information or clarification and payment of fees.
