Thousands will hit the streets of Downtown Tallahassee tomorrow for Springtime Tallahassee Parade and Festival.
More than 100 floats are expected to participate in tomorrow's parade-which starts at 10:30 and runs down Monroe Street downtown. A lot of people have been asking what happens if it rains. Representatives from the parade say the show will go on rain or shine, and good news for us, they've got pretty good luck. Springtime Tallahassee has never been rained out in years past. As long as there's no lightning, you can expect a wonderful parade Saturday.
"We will take a look tomorrow morning, but as of right now, the parade is definitely on. We encourage everyone to come out because they'll have a great time. And we might just get lucky like we have in previous years", says Organizer, Parker Trammell.
If you have questions about the parade in the morning, you can call 511or visit 511.com on the web. They have tools to help you figure out where it's congested, that way you can plan appropriately and still get downtown without any problems.
