Residents and attendees are urged to cooperate with the Village and the Lombard Lilac Festival Parade Committee to help prevent individuals from removing the posted "No Parking" signs before and during the Parade. Additionally, everyone is advised to follow the temporary parking restrictions so the Parade can run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. 

Main St. will be closed to all vehicle traffic from Central to Parkside shortly before the Parade begins. Detour routes for Main St. will be posted and are as follows: From the North: St Charles Rd. east to Grace St. and south on Grace to Central. Central west to Main, then onto Edward continuing west to Finley. Or St. Charles west to Finley merging onto Crescent and then south on Finley road.

Volunteers from the Lombard Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association will be assisting the Lombard Police Department with traffic direction and crowd control during Parade time.

As a reminder, the Lilac Parade is a family event and the consumption of alcoholic beverages along the Parade route is prohibited under Village Ordinance Title 9, Chapter 95.03, Section (A).

The Lombard Fire Department will have one ambulance located at 805 South Main St. and one at Colonial Commons in the 400 block of South Main St. to provide adequate emergency care during the Parade.
