On Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 10:00AM Neches River Festival Parade will start at S MLK and Bonham St. The parade will continue north down S MLK, turn east bound on Calder Ave toward downtown Beaumont and then turn south on Park St. It will continue west on Liberty Ave, south on Neches St. and end on Crockett St.
The floats and participants will stage up on S MLK. Both north and south bound lanes of MLK from Bonham to Calder will shut down and be detoured from 8:00am to at least 10:30am or until all floats and participants are off MLK.
There will be several streets barricaded along the route and traffic detoured. Please notify your employees and ask them to adjust their route accordingly.
For unrestricted access to downtown areas east of MLK Parkway, we recommend using McFaddin St north of Calder Ave, College Street south of Bonham and Fourth St. as a detour around the barricaded section of S MLK Parkway.
For unrestricted access to the Cops and Kids Carnival at the Event Center, we recommend taking College Street to MLK and then turn east on Bowie St.
