Winter Carnival Traffic Advisory

Adapted From a Greenfield Recreation Department press release:

The Greenfield Recreation Department would like to remind people that tonight's Winter Carnival Parade of Lights will begin precisely at 6PM, at Newton School, and arrive at Beacon Field around 6:30PM, after winding its way through downtown.  Motorists are asked, if possible, to avoid Main and Federal Streets during the parade.  In addition, spectators should be aware that some streets and parking areas around Beacon Field will be closed.

Parade Route 2016:
Start at Newton School Parking lot
Left from Shelburne Road onto Mohawk Trail/Main Street
Left onto Federal Street
Right onto Beacon Street
Cross High Street toward Beacon Field
End at Beacon Field along Beacon and Gerrett Streets

Parking Information & Street Closures for the Parade & Fireworks at Beacon Field:
Gerrett Street and the Beacon Street parking lot will both be closed, and no parking will be allowed on either side of Beacon Street, but the Sanderson Street parking lot will be open.

Driving Tips:
*Many side roads may be congested as traffic navigates around the parade route so please be patient.  The parade is made up of motorized vehicles only and will pass quickly.
*Please be respectful to all of our Volunteer Road Marshals who will be directing traffic at key intersections.
*If you are driving on the street and see the parade coming toward you (it will be led by a police cruiser) please pull over to the side of the road.
*Please pay extra attention to parade spectators who may be crossing the street.
