Respectful Behavior

This event draws out thousands of observers who will be walking the Boulevard along the route. Please do not detract from this local event by holding your own event the same day. We humbly ask that you refrain from parking lot bar-b-cues, beer gardens, parties, loud music, or obnoxious behavior during the event. Please remember, this is a family friendly event. There will be small children with their parents out in the neighborhood to watch the parade, and we all need to set an example for appropriate behavior.


Need to find parking for the parade? No problem! The College Ave. Baptist Church (4747 College Ave.) is opening up their parking lot for free BOO! Parade parking. You can access that lot from 62nd & El Cajon Blvd., or off of Arosa St. (at College Ave.) El Cajon Blvd. and College Ave. will close around 9:30am; please plan on being at the parade before then. If you can't get to the parade before 9:30am, the map below will show you a detour route to parking at the College Avenue Baptist Church.
