For the past week we have been working to get a location where local Democrats can rally and support the arrival of President Obama and Vice President Biden in Knoxville. We apologize for the lateness of this notice, but because of the security constraints we weren't able to announce these plans until now.
At this time we think it will be possible to gather in the area by the Pellissippi Exit off the Pellissippi Parkway by the overpass on Hardin Valley Rd.
Below are some instructions on how to get there.
We believe the President may be arriving in Knoxville at 12 noon and will speak at the College around 1:20 PM
You should try to get there by 11AM or 11:30AM since they will probably close off the Parkway when the motorcade is on its way.
Parking on Valley Vista Rd., walking down Carmichael to Pellissippi and you would be at Hardin Valley Exit. If Pellissippi is closed drivers could get there from Lovell Road, then to Yarnell and left onto Carmichael which leads to Valley Vista Rd./Pellissippi. Valley Vista is the new road which goes from Carmichael to Hardin Valley Road. It comes out between the two entrances to Pellissippi College at Hardin Valley Road.
