WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A popular street near Purdue University's campus will be closed off this Saturday evening for a festival, and at the same time, Purdue will be hosting their 2nd home game of this year.

Starry night festival will be hosting eight different musical acts right outside of Greyhouse coffee shop.

This will close off several routes throughout campus that are heavily used near Chauncey. 

Purdue University Police Department Chief, John Cox says safety is the utmost importance for the night.

"What we always recommend is that people take a little bit of extra time- especially post-game if there's no rush to get out kind of let some of the early outbound traffic begin to move," stated Chief Cox.

Chief Cox wants to advise all sport and festival on goers to be cautious when driving and watch out for pedestrians.
He says while two major events will be happening this Saturday he believes traffic will be minimal.

"There should be minimal impact on Starry Night- The only impact the city may see is people that are coming back into town trying to get around the traffic pattern because they want to get back to a residence hall or so on," stated Chief Cox.

The Starry Night Festival is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. this Saturday with the Purdue Football game starting at 7:30 p.m.
