Lights Fantastic Route
Beginning at 3:00 p.m., East Mill Street from South Wall Street to South Illinois Avenue and South Washington Street from College Street to Grand Avenue will be closed to accommodate the staging of the parade.
Beginning at 5:30 p.m., Main Street (Illinois Route 13 West) will be closed from Wall Street to University Avenue (U.S. Route 51 South), Walnut Street (Illinois Route 13 East) will be closed from University Avenue (U.S. Route 51 South) to Washington Street, Illinois Avenue (U.S.51 North) will be closed from Mill Street to Oak Street, Jackson Street will be closed from Illinois Avenue (U.S.51 North) to Washington Street, and Washington Street will be closed from Jackson Street to Walnut Street (Illinois Route 13 East).
Changes in the detour route this year involve moving the parade staging area from Grand Avenue to East Mill Street. The parade will begin at the Mill Street Underpass rather than at Grand Avenue as in past years. This move will allow Grand Avenue to remain open and accommodate east and west bound traffic.
Christmas lights go on trees...not on floats!
