The Town advises its residents that temporary street closings will be in effect during the parade, travel delays are possible and parking may be limited in some areas.

Route 156 will be closed from approximately 10:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. between Sterling City Road North and South with a detour along Sterling City Road.
