Parade Route Change

according to the Freep, they’ve changed the parade route!!! when i first read the headline i was kinda bummed because i like the fact that it’s just a block over from my place… but it turns out that it’ll still be close by cuz they’re moving the starting point to Woodward and Mack (instead of Woodward and Warren)… since they’re moving the starting point further south, it’ll end further south as well… the Freep says that it’ll end at Jefferson going through Grand Circus Park and wrapping around Campus Martius…

i think it’s a good move cuz it’ll showcase downtown more… but how are they gonna get the balloons over/under the People Mover rail at GCP??? they prolly have that all figured out (i hope!)…

also, the parade start time was moved up to 9:20 a.m. (instead of 10)…

    Back in 99-00 when I marching in the parade for my old high school, we did the entire route, all the way from Warren (i think) south to Jefferson. The judging booth was actually in front of the Spirit of Detroit statue. It’s a really damn long route.
