“We here at Lucky Lou’s are overjoyed to be a part of this year’s 35 Denton festival. We feel like this festival is a wonderful thing for the culture of our city, and are excited to partner with 35 to help alleviate parking headaches by offering a free bus service from the Uptown/Fry St. area to the downtown festival,” shares Lucky Lou’s owner, Lou Delaney.

Head over to Lucky Lou’s, Cool Beans, and/or Riprocks and enjoy a marg on the patio before engaging en route to beautiful Downtown Denton. If you go by Cool Beans, we recommend pairing whatever you are drinking with one of their delicious burgers. The bus service will be free to riders, provided by our friends and the owners of the most iconic Fry. St. area bars.

We all know that parking downtown is going to be a special project during the festival weekend, and we are here to help. In addition to this helpful bus service, you can get $20 worth of free Uber rides throughout town (use code 35Denton).

If you’re engaging in responsible transportation methods, we double dog dare you to do a ‘Fry St. crawl’ before heading over to the festival – you know the drill, shots at each bar! Get ready to party, Denton! Tip your bartenders!
