This Saturday, December 3rd marks the 70th iteration of the Springfield Christmas Parade! In an effort to avoid confusion, please note the route shared here. The parade kicks off Saturday at 1pm, but multiple roads will be shut down prior to that for participant and attendee safety and traffic control.
The staging area on Olympic St., from 28th St. to 21st St. will be completely closed off, including exits from Walmart and 23rd St., starting at 8:30am for floats to be setup and decorated. No vehicle traffic or drop-offs except vehicles that are registered to drive in the parade will be allowed in this area.
Walmart & Wilco parking lots are the correct locations to drop off anyone participating in the parade. Once the parade starts, streets ahead following the route will be strategically shut down and completely unavailable for normal traffic until the last vehicles are through. The parade will start at 21st & Olympic and end at Main & Pioneer Parkway East.
Please plan accordingly to avoid any unnecessary trips through this area at the time, We can’t wait to see you there!
