Due to the Dublin High School Homecoming Parade, there will be some street closures and re-routing of traffic this afternoon.
Mayor Tim Sbranti, who is also activities director at Dublin High, said of Village Parkway will be closed in both directions from Amador Valley Boulevard to Davona Drive beginning at 2:30 p.m.
The Homecoming Parade starts at 3:45 p.m. at the Parkway Fellowship Church (formerly Parkway Baptist, located at 7485 Village Parkway next to Los Pericos). The Parade will continue down Village Parkway to the Dublin High parking lot next to the Dublin Swim Center. Class floats, royalty, car show winners, marching bands, cheerleaders, the football team, and representatives from every public school in Dublin will be participating.
Although it is expected that the parade will be over by 4:15 and roads may be re-opened as early as 4:30 p.m., motorists are being asked to plan as if the roads will be closed until at least 4:45 p.m. Members of Fitness 2000 and patrons of businesses in the Village Square Shopping Center will still have full access off of Amador Valley Boulevard during the duration of the street closures.
People planning on attending the parade are being encouraged to access the campus by heading west on Brighton Drive from Amador Valley Boulevard. Attendees are also being encouraged to arrive early. Alternative options for accessing the parade are Tamarack Drive east of Village Parkway (near Frederiksen Elementary) or west of Village Parkway on Brighton Drive (near Kolb Park and the DUSD District Office). Spectators can also park in the Village Square Shopping Center.
Following the parade, Dublin High School will be hosting its annual Homecoming Carnival, which is sponsored by the DHS Student Leadership class and nearly 30 campus clubs and organizations. There will be over 17 inflatables, 40 carnival games and attractions, live entertainment, and 16 food and beverage booths.
The Homecoming Football game against Campolindo will be kicking off at 7:00 p.m.
