Don’t park on the parade route tonight or your vehicle will be ticketed and towed. That’s the word from the Bismarck Police Department who is reminding citizens that tonight is the Band Night Parade. “Every year we end up towing vehicles parked illegally along the parade route, and we ticket many more,” said Traffic Sergeant Tim Bleth. “Violators parked in the no parking zones along the parade route can expect a $10 ticket, and if their vehicle is towed a minimum $30 impound fee and minimum tow bill of $135.”
The parade starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Capitol Grounds, goes down Sixth Street to Avenue C, West on Avenue C to 4th Street and then 4th Street back to the Capitol Grounds where the parade will end. Temporary no parking signs have been put up along the parade route. The temporary no parking enforcement along the parade route begins at 5:00 pm today and continues until the parade is over.
Cars parked along the parade route not only spoil the view for spectators, but they also create potential problems for parade units that are especially wide. The Bismarck Police Department wants everyone to enjoy the parade, and thanks the citizens for their cooperation along the parade route.
