Parade To Bring Road Closures In Wellington

The 35th annual Wellington Holiday Parade will take place on Sunday, Dec. 9 beginning at 1:30 p.m. As in previous years, in order to provide a safe procession for the parade, there will be a temporary closure of Forest Hill Blvd. from its northern intersection at Wellington Trace to South Shore Blvd. between the hours of 1 p.m. and approximately 5:30 p.m.

Beginning at 1 p.m., Forest Hill Blvd. will be closed, along with Ken Adams Way and Chancellor Drive. In addition, one lane on the east side of Forest Hill Blvd. between Montauk and Ken Adams Way will be closed beginning at 8 a.m. to facilitate setup of the stage, and the section of Forest Hill Blvd. between Wellington Trace and Ken Adams Way will be closed to one lane of traffic from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The designated parade route will begin at the intersection of Wellington Trace and Forest Hill Blvd. and continue east on Forest Hill to South Shore Blvd. Village employees will be stationed at strategic points along the parade route with barricades to prevent the movement of traffic as the parade passes through, as well as to provide assistance to area residents. PBSO deputies will also be stationed at various points.

Signs have been placed at each subdivision entryway and variable message board signs have been located at each end of Forest Hill Blvd. to advise residents and area motorists of the upcoming road closures.
