GLBT Pride Parade this Weekend!
Dear John,
 
In addition to Chicago Pride Fest yesterday and today on Halsted, the 40th Annual GLBT Pride Parade will take place tomorrow, Sunday.  The GLBT Pride Parade assembly area is on Halsted Street between Fullerton and Belmont.  The parade route is north on Halsted Street from Belmont to Grace, then south on Broadway to Diversey, then east on Diversey into the park at Cannon Drive.  The parade map indicates both the assembly and parade route areas.  The assembly area will be closed to traffic beginning at 10:00am.  The parade route will be closed to traffic beginning at 11:00 am.  The entire assembly/route area will be posted with temporary signs indicating "NO PARKING on Sunday 28, June 2009 from 5:00am to 8:00pm."  There will be additional parking restrictions on Belmont Avenue between Sheffield and Broadway, on the east side of Clark Street, from Halsted to Wellington, and on Wellington Avenue between Halsted and Clark.
 
Due to the volume of vehicles involved, the issuing of parking violation citations and towing will start at 5:00am - Promptly.  Parking restrictions will also be in effect on Halsted Street from Addison to Grace.  Parking will be prohibited in this area from Friday, June 26, 2009 10:00am-11:00pm and Saturday, June 27, 2009 3:00am through Sunday, 28 June 2009 8:00pm.  These areas will also be posted with temporary signs indicating the above listed dates and times.  Violators will be ticketed and towed.

Cross streets along the parade route will be closed beginning at 11:00am.  The parade will step off at 12:00pm and will take approximately two and one half hours to finish crossing Belmont & Halsted.  After this time the floats will still be winding their way to the finish at Diversey & Sheridan.  Halsted Street, from Belmont to Addison will remain closed after the Parade passes and will be utilized as a Safety Buffer Zone.  Streets will be re-opened along the parade route after street cleaning is completed.  We will try to assist community members getting in and out of the area as best we can without jeopardizing anyone's safety.  Due to the logistics of the parade route, some residents will unfortunately be inconvenienced.  Adjusting your travel schedule during the time of this event will eliminate some frustration and help reduce congestion.

CTA buses on Addison, Belmont, Diversey, Sheridan, Broadway and Halsted will be rerouted during this event. Information on the reroutes can be obtained by calling the CTA Customer Service at 1-888-YOUR-CTA (1-888-968-7282).

Any questions pertaining to this event can be directed to Officer Jose Rios at the Town Hall Police Station - 23rd District, Community Policing Office at 312-744-0064. During the parade, our primary concern will be to maintain the highest degree of public safety possible for residents and the hundreds of thousands of visitors.  We ask that everyone do their part to assist in making this event safe and enjoyable.
