CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | MAY 23-29, 2019 LINCOLN 13 The route begins at the parking lot at Keefe, turning onto Smithfield Avenue from Higginson Avenue. The parade will travel north on Smithfield Avenue before turning east on Walker Street, rotating north onto Chapel Street and continuing onto Great Road. A review stand for floats, with an announcer, will be stationed across from Larry's Lincoln Auto at Gateway Park, 487 Great Road. Those unable to make it out to the parade can catch the live-stream on Facebook, captured from the review stand. "The review stand at Gateway Park will be a great place to watch the parade," Gould said, noting its proximity to parking and Chase Farm. Chase Farm may be accessed at any time; however, anyone wish- ing to access the farm after 10:30 a.m. and before the road opens back up should do so from the east (Breakneck Hill Road side), with all other traffic being detoured up to Dexter Rock Road. Great Road from Chase Farm to Gateway Park will close at 10:30 a.m. Once Great Road opens up for traffic at approximately 12:30 or 12:45 p.m., pedestrian traffic will be prohibited along Great Road for safety reasons. Gould again encouraged parade- goers to park at Bellows or Lonsdale and walk over to the review stand at Gateway Park, noting the addi- tion of the shuttle buses from Chase Farm to return them safety to their vehicle. He said the turnout at last year's event was much higher than expect- ed. "We learned a lot from our first time out the gate," he said. "We'll be adding more food, more portable restrooms and a shuttle leaving every 15 minutes from out in front of Chase Farm." Lastly, Gould said there would be first aid and hydration stations set up at the Saylesville Fire Station if any- one needs them. The grand marshal of this year's parade is former Lincoln Emergency Management Director Ernest Lacombe, with Frank Carpano of NBC 10 as honorary grand marshal.
