Parking restrictions announced for Lombard Lilac Festival Parade

LOMBARD – This year's Lilac Time festivities will conclude with the annual Lilac Festival Parade scheduled for 1:30 p.m. May 19, beginning at Main Street and Wilson Avenue.

To ensure a safe and successful parade for all participants and spectators, the Lombard Police Department has issued several parking restrictions that will be in place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on parade day.

Any no-parking zones will be marked with "No Parking" signs during the morning hours of May 19, and Lombard Police Chief Ray Byrne has requested that all residents follow these restrictions so the parade route can continue as scheduled.

Byrne also has issued a reminder that the Lilac Festival Parade is a family event and that consumption of alcoholic beverages on and along the parade route are prohibited.

Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic just before the beginning of the parade, and members of the village's Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association will be working to direct traffic and manage crowd control.

Two ambulances will be stationed near the parade route at 805 S. Main St. and at the Colonial commons, in the 400 block of South Main Street.
