ROAD CLOSURES & PICK UP RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 59TH ANNUAL GARDEN CITY DDA SANTALAND PARADE, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30
Don't forget on parade day, Middlebelt
Road will be closed from Warren
to about Marquette, Ford Road will
be closed from Henry Ruff to Harrison
and Central will be closed from
Maplewood to Ford. The main streets
will be closed around 9:30 am and
Central will closed closer to 10 am.
For those of you picking up kids and
other participants at the end of the
parade, you will not allowed in the
Garden City Town Center
(Planet Fitness) parking lot after
about 9:50 am. Cars in the lot will be
allowed to exit to go north only.
Side streets that cross Central will be
blocked by the Garden City Police
until the parade is complete.
You are encouraged to park at
Cambridge School or on side streets
east of Central including Krauter,
Beechwood, Birchlawn, Dawson,
Block, Elmwood or Balmoral.
Another option is to park south of Ford Road, east of Middlebelt, and pick up people after they go through the second performance area. Parking is available on Pardo Street. You can get there early and watch the parade yourself along with all the performances by the five bands and other groups.
The most important thing is to be patient and be very careful in the area both on foot and in your vehicle. We would hate for someone to get hurt because someone didn't obey the road closures on the day of celebration in Garden City.
