________________________________________________________________________

The Sonora High School Homecoming Parade will take place Friday, 15 Oct. 2010. 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 streets.

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. The parade will then travel south on Washington Street and end at the intersection of Washington and Church Streets.

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.

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 also asking that drivers be patient, as traffic flow will be extremely slow and congested in the downtown area, even more than normal for a Friday afternoon.
