ASSEMBLY & CHECK-IN
Please enter the parade line at Hill Avenue and Howard Baker Jr. Blvd. to report to your designated lineup location. The parade will assemble on Howard Baker Jr. Blvd. next to the Knoxville Civic Coliseum. Please allow for extra time due to heavy traffic, street closures, and re-routed lanes. Each unit/organization will receive information regarding the unit number and lineup location. Please report to your lineup location on the day of the parade. A volunteer will be there to check you
The parade units will be staged on Howard Baker Jr. Blvd., travel up Church St. and turn right on Gay Street, continue over Summit Hill and make the sharp turn onto Jackson Ave. Give your unit enough room to make the turn. The parade will disband just past Barley’s in the parking lot on Jackson and Willow. View Parade Route>>
