CISD Homecoming Parade Traffic Plan

The Southlake Police Department is making final preparations to the traffic and mobility plan for this year’s Carroll Independent School District’s Homecoming parade that will take place in Town Square on Wednesday, October 19.

If you’re planning to attend this year’s homecoming parade, you’ll want to take a moment to familiarize yourself with the traffic plan and map of Town Square that we have provided. The parade will begin in the 400 block of Grand Avenue West, between Truluck’s Seafood Steak & Crab House and Barnes & Noble.

Police Officers, Citizens on Patrol (COPs), and Public Works teams will begin putting up barricades to block off streets in Town Square around 5:00 p.m. The parade will kick off at 6:30 p.m., followed by a pep rally at the end of the parade.

So, here’s what you need to know:

  • 5:00 p.m. – Barricades go up to block streets for the homecoming parade. (No through traffic will be allowed.)
  • 6:00 p.m. – Parade line up will begin. Parade staging area will be in the north parking lots of Town Square.
  • 6:30 p.m. – Parade begins.
  • 7:30 p.m. – Parade concludes.
  • 7:30 p.m. – Pep rally begins in front of Town Hall.
  • 8:00 p.m. – The homecoming event concludes.

At the conclusion of the parade, Public Works employees will begin taking down the barricades, except for the streets where the pep rally is being held.

Street Closures for the pep rally (4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.)

  • State/Fountain: north and east intersection
  • Grand/Fountain: west side of intersection
  • State/Main: north and west intersection
  • Grand/Main: west side of intersection
  • Division: between state and north parking lot of Hilton Hotel

Once the homecoming parade and pep rally conclude, drivers will be able to travel through Town Square and exit onto Southlake’s main thoroughfares.

This homecoming event leads up to the Friday, Oct. 21 Homecoming Game, CISD vs. Byron Nelson, at 7:30 p.m. at Dragon Stadium. We hope to see you there! Go Dragons!
