The lineup will take place in the old break-down area at Lockwood and Broad.

"There will be several road closures along the lineup area which will begin at 11 a.m. Sunday," CPD officials say."Towing will begin on the parade route at 11 a.m. This is a closed parade route and no vehicles will be allowed to park on the parade route with the exception of Broad Street. It is anticipated the route will be closed to all vehicular traffic about 12:45 p.m. due to the large amount of arriving viewers who will line the street. At certain intersections, east and west traffic will be allowed to flow."
