The El Cerrito Centennial Showcase Parade will be held on Saturday, September 16. If you are walking with the ECDC, plan on arriving no later than 8:45 a.m. The staging area is the north section of the Safeway parking lot at 11450 San Pablo Avenue, corner of Hill Street.
If you drive to the staging area, plan on leaving your vehicle in the BART del Norte parking lot, not the Safeway parking lot.
The parade will proceed up Hill Street and turn right on Elm Street, which becomes Richmond Street. It will then turn left on Moeser Lane and end at Cerrito Vista Park. The entire parade route is 1.7 miles long and the organizers are hoping to keep a pace of five miles per hour.
