Johnstown 250th Anniversary
September 13, 2008 (Sat) - Johnstown, NY
We are in the 9th division, which will lineup no later than 10:30am on N. Chase St., just a few blocks from the beginning of the parade route. The parade begins at 11am heading west on E. Main St. (starting at the intersection of E. State St.) then heads north on N. Williams St., becoming W. State St., and ends at Johnson Hall. There will be NO THRU Traffic on the Parade Route starting at 10:30am, so it may be easier to drop the cars off at the end if we arrive earlier. There will be shuttle buses, which may not run until after the parade, and they can take us back to the lineup. Otherwise, parking is available at Johnson High School, which is a couple of blocks from Johnson Hall. Our Division Marshall, Leon Peck, said he would help us figure it how to get to parking areas when we get there.
From Town Hall, it's about 50 miles, or an hour drive, so drivers will be reimbursed $20 each for this event to compensate for the round trip (you are still eligible even if the distance is less for you).
