Street Closure for Grande Parade

Main Street Port Clinton will host the Walleye Festival Grande Parade presented by Civilian Marksmanship Program on Saturday, May 24, at 1 p.m. This year’s new and improved parade route brings spectators even closer to the Walleye Festival and through the center of the historic downtown. 

The CMP Grande Parade begins at the Port Clinton High School and heads west on 10th Street, north on Madison, east on Perry Street, south on Jefferson Street and back to the High School.

To accommodate this event, the 100 block of East Perry Street will be closed no longer than one hour for the parade with the detours being set up at Perry Street at Fulton Street for the east to Wilcox Road and Perry Street at Monroe Street for the west to Fremont Road.
