New Parade Route

As the City of Waukesha prepares for upcoming events, safety protocols and procedures for all events continue to be reviewed. In 2023, there will be a new parade route in effect for all parades. The City will continue to establish a secure perimeter along the route with parking restrictions in place along the parade route. As each parade approaches, the City will communicate to the public the times the perimeter will be in effect.
