Good luck finding a parking spot.

The St. Stephen Chase the Ace is growing just as fast as the jackpot, with thousands of people taking part last week for a chance to win the money. Line-ups at the Garcelon Civic Center alone wrapped around the back of the building all night.

The local fundraiser for the Fundy Region Transition House is set for tonight, and due to such large crowds, officials say you can now purchase tickets from 5 to 9pm from all four locations; Dooley's, Kelly's on King, The 5 Kings Restaurant, and the Garcelon Civic Center.

There are also a number of Chase the Ace parties around town at other nearby businesses, where you can still listen in for the winning number after purchasing your ticket elsewhere.

The winning number will be announced around 9:30pm on 98.1 The Tide.

The jackpot is now at $174,567.50 with only four cards left in the deck.
