[ARCHIVED] Geneva Homecoming Parade To Close Several Streets

Homecoming Parade Geneva High School 3

The City’s downtown streets will be full of Viking pride as Geneva High School celebrates homecoming with its annual parade Friday, Sept. 15.

State Street (Route 38) between Third and Ninth streets will be shut down at 2 p.m. to accommodate the event. All streets listed on the parade route also will be closed to traffic:

  • Geneva High School/Stevens Street east to Anderson Boulevard;
  • Anderson Boulevard south to State Street;
  • State Street east to Third Street; and
  • Third Street north to Hamilton Street.

A detour route will direct motorists traveling eastbound on State Street to turn south on Ninth Street, east on James Street, north on Third Street, and back east on State Street. The directions will be reversed for westbound traffic.

As the students march back to the high school, traffic also will be impacted on Third Street from State to Stevens streets; and Stevens Street from Third Street to McKinley Avenue.  

Police officers will be providing traffic control, but motorists should use caution when driving through the downtown due to the large crowd anticipated to attend the parade. The streets are expected to be reopened after 3:30 p.m.
