Main Street between 19th and McGaffey streets will be closed to traffic beginning about 9:30 a.m. Traffic detours will be in place. The parade, which begins at 10 a.m., and will travel south on Main Street from College Boulevard, is expected to last at least two hours.
During the parade, parking will not be allowed along the parade-route portion of Main Street.
Some city offices and facilities will be closed so city employees may attend the parade. City hall will be closed Monday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Some other city facilities may be closed during that time as well.
