If you are in the parade you will want to take advantage of the free shuttle buses. The buses will transport you between 7:30am and 9:00am from the center (next to Choice Fitness) where the parade ends up to the beginning of the parade. No parking is available at the start of the parade and thus there are no buses after the parade finishes.
The parade is approximately two miles long and runs from the McCarthy Middle School down North Road through Chelmsford Center
Parade Route End
Parking is very limited in the plaza. Best to park on Summer St and take the shuttle bus if you are in the parade.
If you are in the parade, McCarthy Middle School is where you want to be. Units start lining up at 7:30 and need to be in place by 9:00am. If you have a float or large trailer please enter from Old Westford Road.
