Village employees will be stationed along the parade route with barricades to prevent the movement of traffic on the roadway as the parade passes through, as well as to provide assistance to area residents.

PBSO deputies will also be stationed at various points in order to control traffic. Roads will be reopened once cleanup is complete.
