THE PARADE ROUTE features

sidewalks along the whole route. But, snagging a spot to set up a chair or stand and watch the parade near the judge’s stand (by Panda Express) will allow you to see groups perform in front of the judges and then easily walk over to the festival grounds when the parade ends. The festival parade route begins at the Real Life Church Campus at 26201 180th Ave SE. Parade staging begins at 9 a.m. and that means road closures will begin around 9:30 a.m. and will last up until 1 p.m. The parade will enter onto 180th Ave SE and head south toward 272nd/Kent Kangley. It will turn right (or west) onto Kent Kangley and continue west to SE 169th Place SE where it will turn right (or north) and head towards the Kohl’s parking lot. The new parade route is just over one mile long and the judging stand will be located on 272nd/Kent Kangley near Panda Express and Starbucks.

There will be multiple road closures and detours in Covington during the parade. While 272nd/Kent Kangley westbound will be closed between 180th/Wax Road and 168th Place SE, the eastbound lanes will remain open at all times. Please obey all road closure and detour signs.

PARKING
