The parade will start at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, and go up Nuccio Parkway, then turn east on 7th Avenue to 23rd Street.

7th Avenue will be closed starting at 2:00 p.m. to accommodate the event.  Barricades will be set up at the intersections, and bleachers will be set up in designated parking wells along 7th Avenue.

Parking will be allowed on 7th Avenue until 2:00 p.m., and will be marked by signs.  Please make sure all vehicles are removed from 7th Avenue by 2:00 p.m. to avoid ticketing and towing.  To see where you can’t park, click the event map on the right.
