Rochesterfest parade is Friday — here's this year's new route
With a new location comes a new parade route for Rochesterfest.
The parade begins Friday at 6:15 p.m. at the intersection of Sixth Street and Second Avenue SW, by the People's Food Cooperative. It ends just a block away near the Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial.
According to organizers, about 100 groups will participate in the parade.
This is the first time Rochesterfest is being held at Soldiers Field. It was forced to move from its previous location in downtown Rochester because of the Mayo Civic Center's $85 million renovation and expansion project.
The event runs through Sunday. Click here for a full list of events.
