Riders should take note that routes listed above will be detoured around the parade route on June 21, due to street closures beginning at 7 a.m.

As the Capital Metro railroad tracks bisect Rosewood Park, the agency strongly urges the community to stay off the tracks and only cross at dedicated crossings. MetroRail begins service on Saturday, June 21 at 4 p.m., but festival goers should always expect a train, as freight trains may be in service. MetroRail trains are faster and quieter than freight trains. Learn more about rail safety.
