More streets will be closed for the inaugural parade, which is expected to begin at 1:30 p.m. The parade route runs from the main gate of the Naval Academy to East Street to State Circle to North Street. The route turns left onto College Avenue, right onto Bladen Street and north to Rowe Boulevard.

Parking will not be allowed on the parade route beginning at 8 a.m. Vehicles parked on the route after 8 a.m. will be towed. The parade is expected to end at 3 p.m.
