Parking Information

Spectator Parking

Spectator parking will be available at:

  • Festival Building, 2200 E Washington Street (at the start of the route)
  • East Peoria Community High School, 1401 E Washington Street
  • Fon du Lac Park District Administration Building near the intersection of Washington Street and Veterans Drive
  • Central Junior High School on Taylor Street (near the end of the route)

(For those who park at the junior high school and anywhere along Taylor Street, vehicles must remain parked until the Santa float passes by, which is the end of the parade.)

Some businesses along the parade route allow parking and some do not. Parade spectators should check with a business first to make sure parking will be allowed in their lot. 

Those parking along side streets will need to make sure not to block residents' driveways.

Handicapped Parking

Handicapped parking will be available along Taylor Street in areas designated with handicap signage. Vehicles must have a handicapped sticker, license plate or dash card. Overnight parking will be permitted as long as vehicles are properly tagged. A limited number of handicapped parking spots are available on a first come, first served basis.
