Free CATA shuttle planned for Newell events tonight

Those planning to attend the Newell Stadium grand opening festivities and Gloucester High School Fishermen’s football game tonight need not fret about parking, thanks to a free shuttle service from Stage Fort Park to the stadium, courtesy of Cape Ann Transportation Authority.

CATA will begin its shuttle service from Stage Fort Park at 4:45 p.m. for the special event and continue driving people from their parked cars to the stadium and back until after the game.

The gates open at 5 p.m., then a parade of athletes kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Remarks and a ribbon cutting follow at 6 p.m., and the opening game between Gloucester and Lynn Classical is slated to start at 7:30 p.m.

Also, after the shuttle makes its last run, Mile Marker One Restaurant and Bar will host a post-game celebration and fund-raiser featuring the reggae band, Dread Rock.

The after party officially begins at 9 p.m. Mile Marker One plans to donate 10 percent of its sales from the evening to the Gloucester Fisherman Athletic Association, the nonprofit organization that provides relief for students who struggle to pay their athletic fees, and served as the lead organization behind the $3.5 million Newell Stadium “renewal” project.
