All parade entries must continue to Brockett Elementary School parking lots to de-stage.  Proceed as far into the parking lot as possible, to ensure all entries are allowed to safely de-stage and tear down.

Caution: Do not Stop on Railroad Tracks.  Keep Tracks Clear!!!

Note: Horse Trailers, etc., should proceed to the pickup area at the Brockett Elementary school BEFORE the parade begins.  Main Street Will be CLOSED from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
