DENVILLE, NJ - The entire length of Broadway and sections of Bloomfield Avenue and Diamond Spring Road will be closed for periods of time on Nov. 26 for the annual Denville Chamber of Commerce Holiday Parade, police said.
The parade is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. It will begin on Bloomfield Avenue at the entrance of the Upper Bloomfield Avenue Parking Lot and then go onto Broadway. After that, the contingent will turn right onto Diamond Spring Road, make a left onto Church Street and then turn right onto Clark Street en route to Santa Land, police said.
All of Broadway and sections of Bloomfield Avenue will be closed to vehicles beginning at noon. Diamond Spring Road between Broadway and Riverside Drive will be closed starting at 1:45 p.m., police said.
"Anyone not attending the parade is strongly recommended to plan an alternate route around the area," police said. They said vehicles headed to St. Clare's Hospital should access Pocono Road from the Boulevard in Mountain Lakes.
Parking on any streets along the parade route will be prohibited, police said. They asked those coming for the parade to park in one of the three municipal parking lots on West Main Street, First Avenue and Bloomfield Avenue. Parking in those lots will be free and permit requirements will be suspended on parade day, police said. Free on-street parking will also be allowed on any side street off of the parade route.
The roads will re-open to traffic after the parade ends, around 3:30 p.m., police said. Those with questions are asked to call 973-627-4900 ext. 354.
