Due to the 5K course & parade route, additional roads and intersections will be closed. Please plan to arrive early and leave plenty of time for parking and walking to the venue. Participants and spectators driving to the race should plan to be parked no later than 7:00 am on Thursday to avoid road closures. Metered parking is available downtown and is free due to the holiday, however, the police will be strictly enforcing the special NO PARKING permits on and around the 5K course, parade route, and parade assembly and dispersal areas. Vehicles left in these areas are likely to be towed.
