Parade Traffic & Safety Restrictions
The Police Division will place non-movable barricades or City vehicles at streets intersecting Northwest Blvd. As a result, local traffic will not be able to use Northwest per the following schedule:

  • 6:30-7 am – all streets between Zollinger Rd. and Lane Ave. will be closed at Northwest.
  • 7-7:30 am – most streets between Lane Ave. and North Star Rd. will be closed at Northwest. It will still be possible to cross Northwest at Guilford, Barrington and Waltham roads until approximately 8 am.
  • Travel on Northwest Blvd. will be limited after 7:30 am, and then Northwest will be closed at 8:30 am in preparation for the parade.
  • Lane Ave. will remain open to traffic until approximately 8:30 am.

All streets are expected to be reopened to traffic by 1 pm.

Parking Restrictions
Parking restrictions will be in effect for most streets south of Lane Ave. that surround the parade route – in some instances this will be on both sides of the street, in other instances it will be on the fire hydrant side only. The affected streets will be posted in advance with “no parking” signs. No parking hours will be from 5 am-1 pm on the day of the parade. If you live in the area, please move cars into your driveway or to a nearby location where parking is permissible.

Parade Diversability Zone
The Red Oak Family Foundation is hosting a sensory friendly parade experience in front of Holy Trinity Church, where volumes will be set to 50%, with tents for shade provided, as well as convenient parking with easy access to the viewing area.
