The road through downtown Evergreen will be closed from 9:30 until the last float has made its way through the entire parade route. On-street parking downtown will not be available until after the parade. Please allow ample time to walk to the parade route and to make a leisurely exit. Car pooling is recommended.
Other than walking out of downtown after the parade, no vehicles will be allowed to leave the downtown area until the CSP and Sheriff have given the all clear and have opened highways 73 & 74. There will absolutely be no exceptions. The downtown merchants will have entertainment and merchandise sales until the roads are open, which is expected by 1:00 pm. Then, head on over to the Rodeo Grounds and visit our vendors - save your appetite for delicious turkey legs, foot-long hot dogs, BBQ, healthy wraps, funnel cakes, ice cream and more
