Parade Traffic Control
Parking anywhere on Main Street is prohibited from 1:00 am on July 4th until after the parade is over on the afternoon of July 4th. Any vehicles parked on Main Street during this time will be ticketed & towed at the owner’s expense. Parking lots in the downtown area will also be subject to restrictions. Please watch for changes in signage.
Main Street Closed
Main Street will be closed starting at 7:45 AM on July 4th to accommodate planned events starting at 8:00 AM and leading up to the parade.
The Classic Car Parade will start at approximately 10:30 AM followed by the Grand Parade at 10:45 AM. Both parades will start at Dacotah Centennial Park on Memorial Highway on Mandan and proceed to Main Street and then continue westbound. After the parade begins, traffic traveling to the North and/or South in Mandan will be extremely difficult with long delays.
Traffic in bound from I-94 into Mandan will begin to be detoured from Main Street beginning at 7:45 AM. Memorial Highway will be closed from 3rd St. SE to Main Street at 7:45 AM. If you need to go south of Mandan for any reason please arrange your travel plans to do so prior to 7:45 AM to avoid any time delays or inconvenience.
It is suggested that people coming into Mandan for the parade use not only the Main Street Exit #155 and the Mandan Avenue Exit #153, but also the Sunset Drive Exit # 152. The Main Street entrance to Mandan is usually heavily congested and can be slow for traffic coming into the city during this event.
