The parade steps off at 10 a.m. down by the Athletic fields and travels down Main Street and onto Cottage Street before heading to Mount Desert Street and down Ledgelawn Avenue. The parade typically lasts about a hour with all the floats and participants.
The Bar Harbor Police Department will close all roads that intersect with the parade route around 9:45 a.m. Vehicles will not be able to drive or cross the route until the parade finishes, unless participating in the parade.
