Quick Notes –

Parade route parking and seating is first come first serve, so if you want a great seat please get there early. To find out the “side streets” where you can park and weave your way towards the parade, please look at the route closure map. It will tell you where the parade is, what streets close at what times and lists the side streets for you to access to find parking and then make your way into the parade route.
