The parade is expected to impact traffic as well as Chatham Area Transit Bus Services. CAT says buses will follow the regular weekday schedule. However, some routes and buses will be rerouted or delayed until the parade ends and the streets are cleared. The downtown shuttle will also be suspended until after the parade.

According to the city, vehicles located within the restricted parking areas will be towed at the owner’s expense.

“One of the things we notice the past few years, we’ve tended to tow more cars on this event primarily because I think people get lulled in," said Sean Brandon, City of Savannah Mobility and Parking Director. "They think everything is over and then it’s this event coming up. We just really want to get the word out, please check your block and check the signage on your block.”

Vehicles will not be granted access to the staging area or parade route once the closures begin.
