Parking Tips

City Public Works will close all parking along the route beginning early Saturday morning. The parade staging is from 10th to 14th along Swift and along 14th from Howell to Swift. We want to thank all the businesses which are affected by the parade and highly encourage all attendees to patronize these businesses as they provide us the opportunity to conduct the parade and assist all the numerous charities.

Free parking in North Kanas City is very plentiful. The key to grabbing a good spot close to the parade route is just like any other event – get there in plenty of time.

While there is no designated parade parking we recommend:

– Any public lot or street north of Armour Road
– Any public lot or street south of 18th Avenue and East of Erie Street
– Any public lot or street west of Clay Street
– Public parking at the former NKC Pro Bowl located at 18th and Erie Street.
