Parking Notes

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.

Streets surrounding the Garner Performing Arts Center (Avery Street, Powell Street, Broughton and West Garner Rd between Avery and Broughton) will be closed for parade staging.

Departure Notes

Garner Road and Main Street from Broughton (Hwy 50) to New Rand Road will be shut down for the entirety of the parade. No entry or exit will be allowed by any vehicles during the event.

For spectators on Garner Road, please note that once the end of the parade has passed over New Rand Road, you may EXIT TO THE EAST ONLY (towards Jones Sausage Road).  Garner Road will remain closed from Avery Street to Broughton Street and exiting to the left will incur severe traffic delays.

For spectators on Main Street, this street WILL NOT OPEN UNTIL THE PARADE HAS CONCLUDED. Please be patient and do not try to exit in your vehicle before the event is over.
