Parade Route

  • From Lake Forest Drive, turn right onto Serrano Road
  • Once you reach Ridge Route, you will step off of the parade route

It is important to continue moving along Ridge Route and into the high school parking lot before unloading from an entry. This way we can ensure the safety of all participants and observers.
