The cross streets are barricaded to prevent accidents with parade participants and volunteers will be at every intersection on the parade route to ensure traffic is properly routed. Also, parking is not permitted anywhere on the parade route, vehicles found on the parade route will be towed to the closest municipal parking lot.
