To get to the Event: If you are using a GPS system use this address: Ellis Porter Riverside Park, 320 Ellis Porter Drive, Jefferson City, Mo. 65101. NOTE: I would recommend that you NOT use Mapquest as it routinely will send you to Ellis Blvd and several miles from your designation. Google maps and Apple Maps seem to get it right.
