The Sedalia Area Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas Parade will be held in Downtown Sedalia on Saturday, December 3, 2022. While the parade starts at 6:00 p.m., preparation for the largest parade of the season will start well before that.
The parade route starts at 7th Street and S. Ohio Avenue and proceeds north on Ohio Avenue to Main Street before turning east on Main Street to travel and disband around S. Massachusetts Avenue. Blue pedestrian barriers will protect the parade route this year. In order for City crews to start placing multiple safety barriers, please note the following timeline:
- 2:00 p.m.: No vehicles are allowed to park along S. Ohio Avenue from 7th Street to Main Street. Cross streets (excluding 3rd Street and Main Street) and alleys along the parade route will be blocked.
- 3:00 p.m.: Traffic will be limited to southbound only along S. Lamine Avenue from E. 5th Street to E. 7th Street and S. Massachusetts Avenue from E. 3rd Street to E. 7th Street as parade entries start lining up in this area.
- 4:00 p.m.: W. 5th Street between S. Ohio Avenue and S. Lamine will close for food trucks.
- 5:45 p.m.:No traffic will be allowed to turn east on Main Street from the Main and S. Ohio Avenue intersection.
Once the lead of the parade approaches 3rd St., the intersection of 3rd and Ohio will be closed to traffic except for emergency vehicle response.
