In an effort to avoid road construction and detour routes in Prairie du Chien’s downtown district, Prairie du Chien High School has moved the location of its yearly Homecoming Parade for 2014.
“We had to make the decision back in August and we really didn’t know, at that time, what roads were going to be open or closed,” High School Principal Andy Banasik said.
This year’s parade will take place on several side streets closer to the high school on Wednesday, Oct. 1, starting at 6:30 p.m.
The parade route will begin at Wolf Machine, travel past the Evergreen Cemetery on 15th Street, turn left onto Wells Street for one block, turn right onto Fremont Street, turn left onto Taylor Street and head toward the high school parking lot.
“I would say 15th and Fremont will be good streets to watch the parade from,” Banasik added.
