We’ll be updating this post up until the parade. So far, we’ve updated our map with places around the route where there are public parking decks (most if not all cost money to park there, and be aware that streets will shut down for the parade) as well as area restaurants if you want to grab a snack or stake out a patio to watch the parade from.

If you can’t make it to the parade in person, we’ll be live streaming it here on this post at 1:30 p.m.
