Vehicles are welcome to start lining up at 2 p.m. in the parking stalls on the east side of Victoria Avenue (same as the library).

Overflow traffic will be directed to McRae Street and Epworth Circle. Look for the NRPS directing traffic, crank up the holiday tunes, and enjoy the Chill Zone.

Please keep your speed at 10 km/hr throughout the parade route and no stopping! We'll be sharing professional photos after the parade on Facebook.
