The parade will route through Main Street, Broadway, Old Main Street, High Street, Park Drive, Railroad Avenue, Evans and portions of 2nd & 3rd Avenue, and LaVern Johnson Park.

We are asking for your cooperation in assisting Town officials to clear vehicles from the downtown area prior the event. Parking will be available in Bohn Park, the RTD Parking Lot, and side streets on the north end of town. The space on these streets is needed for safe pedestrian passage, parade traffic flow, and staging.

Cars will not be permitted to park on these roads between the hours of 4:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 3, 2016. Vehicles may be towed at owner’s expense if you are parked in a no parking parade route area between these times.

Spectators should view the parade from the sidewalk areas and should not be in the street while the parade is in session. Please be aware of your surroundings while the parade is passing and please be sure to keep an eye on all children during the event, should items such as candy be thrown by any parade entries (although strictly against parade rules).
