The parade kicks off at 11:00 a.m. by the State Capitol on Capitol Avenue. From there the parade turns left onto main Street, takes another left onto Asylum Street, then left onto on Ford Street, and ends by the Morial Arch. Parking is available in various lots and garages near the XL Center and Convention Center. Decide where you're heading early, since the downtown area gets packed, and some road closures will be in place before the start of the parade.
