Please note, due to construction projects on Memorial Boulevard, the Mum Festival Parade Route will be changed. Please see the new Parade Route in the print below.
The Parade will officially end on North Main Street just past City Hall. Our Grand Reviewing Stand location will be on Main Street in front of Barnes Group. Spectators should avoid North Main Street past City Hall, as that is the official end of the performing route. All units will disperse as they travel onto North Main Street.
The Parade will end on North Main Street, just past City Hall. For spectators, the parade will not continue down North Main as it did in the past.
