The parade assembly will begin at 10:00am at the parking lot at the corner of Wilmington and Lenoir Streets adjacent to the Raleigh Convention Center. See the "Map" link to view the assembly area.
Parking of non-parade vehicles is not permitted in the Assembly Area. The only vehicles that are permitted to park in the Assembly Area are those vehicles traveling on the parade route. Parade participants should either park on city streets or in downtown parking garages. Please note, the Raleigh Convention Center Parking deck and the Performing Arts Center deck will be charging $7 for event parking. Most of the city decks along Wilmington will be open to the public, free of charge on Saturday.
There are a number of parking garages near Moore Square where the parade ends. There is one at the corner of Blount and Hargett Streets and another adjacent to the downtown Bus Station between Blount and Wilmington Streets on Martin Street.
