Parade Route

The Parade route differs slightly this year. Line up is still the RPS 205 (BMO) parking lot for staging. The Parade runs up 7th Street to Charles to State, crossing the river and proceeding to Main then turning left onto Main Street and disbanding near the park District Administration Building (the old post office). State St. bridge and Davis Park will be great places to view Operation Emerald Water, the Rock River turning bright green!
