The Sonora High School Homecoming Parade will take place Friday, 12 Oct. 2012. People are reminded that Washington Street (SR 49) will be closed to all traffic from approx. 2:15 pm to 3:00 pm, between Snell Street and Church Street. School Street will be closed from 1:30 pm to approx. 2:15 pm for staging purposes.

The parade will leave Sonora High School and enter Snell Street from School Street. It will then travel south on Snell Street to Washington Street. At Washington Street, the parade will turn south and travel south on Washington Street. It will then turn right onto Stockton Road, then right again onto South Green Street and end at Courthouse Park.

Following the parade, the Golden Regiment Band will perform in Courthouse Park for approx. 15 minutes. During the band’s performance, Green Street will be closed between Bradford and Yaney Streets. There will be no parking allowed on Green Street between Yaney Street and Stockton Road during the parade. These areas have been posted with “No Parking” signs.

If you are going to be in the downtown area during this time, the Sonora Police Department is asking that you plan ahead and use alternate routes. We are asking drivers to be patient, as traffic flow will be extremely slow and congested in the downtown area following the parade.
