1. Public Parking is very limited. When lots are full, street parking is available on local streets that are not on the parade route. Many street closures will be in effect as of 1:30pm. We recommend you visit our street closure page to help you plan your travel.
2. Avery Street and Powell Street (from Broughton to Avery) will be closed for parade staging.
3. Parade vehicles must enter through Broughton Street, which will be a one-way road for the duration of the parade and available only to residents, their guests and parade participants. Non-parade vehicles are encouraged to enter the neighborhoods around the parade staging area through Johnson Street.
3. Vehicles dropping off participants will not be permitted to stop and drop off at the parade line up location on Avery Street. For the safety of pedestrians, Avery Street (from Powell to Garner Road) will be closed to all traffic . There is a Drop-off Lot available in front of North Garner Middle School on Powell Drive. Parents or guardians can enter the lot, drop off parade participants safely and move vehicles to another location in the area for parking. Please do not try to park in this lot for the duration of the parade! Our goal is to allow all participants to get to designated floats safely. Please plan accordingly and be patient as this is a crowded event.
