Viewing suggestions for the parade
The Waynesville R-VI Homecoming Parade will begin at 2:30 p.m. today on Benton Street in downtown Waynesville and end at Parker Educational Center, next to Waynesville Middle School.
To help minimize the time that Historic 66 is closed down, families who have children participating in the parade are encouraged to view the parade between Dyer and Fleetwood Streets. Families are encouraged to walk to pick up their parade participants, if it is safe to do so, to minimize traffic on Historic 66.
All others are encouraged to view the parade from between Benton and Dyer Streets.
Please note that the parade will end at Fleetwood Street.
Following the parade, individuals who are heading to Waynesville High School and parked between Benton and Dyer Streets are asked to consider taking I-44 west to WHS to alleviate traffic on Historic 66.
As a reminder, Eastbound I-44 is down to one lane.
