HUDSON HEIGHTS — Uptown drivers will need to make alternate parking plans this Sunday, as Fort Tryon Park's Medieval Festival will shut down a major Hudson Heights street.

There will be no parking along Cabrini Boulevard between West 190th Street and Fort Washington Avenue from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sept. 29, festival organizers announced Monday. The entire street will be a tow-away zone in order to accommodate Parks Department, police, and festival vehicles.

More than 60,000 people are expected to attend the 29th annual festival, which will turn a section of Fort Tryon near the Cloisters into a medieval market complete with minstrels and a joust between knights. The festival will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m, rain or shine.
