In order to minimize disruption to traffic flow, street closures along the parade route will occur in a rolling fashion (see attached map). Street closures will reopen immediately after the parade has safely passed. However, a portion of Park Avenue between Morse Boulevard and Canton Avenue will remain closed for the duration of the parade. Side street entrances on to Park Avenue will also be closed as the parade approaches each intersection.
