The parade kicks off at 1 PM on Tuesday, July 4th . All parade participants will gather at Chiswick park, entering from 490 Boston Post Road (across from CVS) where everyone will be directed to their appropriate division. All floats are required to be at Chiswick Park and in their division no later than noon for judging. So, plan accordingly. The parade begins at that point, proceeding down Union Avenue to Route 20, heading east on Route 20 to Concord Road North all the way to Sudbury Town Center. The parade route is approximately 2 miles long. A shuttle will be provided for participants that want to park their vehicles at town center . The shuttle will run from the bus lot behind Peter Noyes Elementary to 490 Boston Post Road at the Chiswick entrance. The shuttle will run from 11am to 3pm. Again, plan accordingly.
Union Avenue will be closing at 12:45; only parade participants will be allowed to enter. Beginning at 12:45 PM, just prior to the parade, the following roads will be closed as well: Boston Post Road (Route 20) from Nobscot Road to Landham Road, Concord Road from Boston Post Road to Plympton Road, and Route 27 from Water Row to Peakham Road. Anyone traveling through the area between 12:45 PM and 4:00 PM should expect extensive delays and/or seek an alternate route. The finish time may vary depending on the length of the parade. The roads will remain closed until participants have safely traversed the parade route. Detours will be set up to minimize the inconvenience to the public.
