As Turlock prepares for the Turlock Downtown Christmas Parade on Friday, many road closures are planned that will affect traffic throughout the day and night.
Main Street will be the most affected by road closures, with the street being closed between Canal Drive and Lander Avenue.
Closures on Main Street will begin as early as 1 p.m., however Golden State Boulevard will remain open until 5 p.m.
There will also be no parking on Main Street between 1 and 10 p.m.
Main Street will be closed until 10 p.m.
Eastbound Canal Drive between Main Street and Johnson Road will be closed beginning at 4 p.m. and will reopen 8 p.m. Westbound Canal Drive will remain open tomorrow.
Broadway Avenue between Market and Chestnut streets will also be closed between 5 and 8 p.m. for the parade.
Detours will not be provided for any of the road closures during the parade.
The 36th annual Turlock Downtown Parade will begin at 6:30 p.m., but it’s suggested you plan to arrive early. Thousands attend the parade each year, many of whom begin saving spots hours before the parade starts. Parking will also be an issue, so plan in advance.
