The Sesquicentennial celebration (150th anniversary of Parkesburg) will be a 3-day event, May 20th-22nd, 2022, rain or shine. In addition to the event's "official FB site" the police department will be posting updates and community notices related to changes in traffic flow, road closures and parking restriction during this special event. A community parade has been scheduled for Saturday, May 21, 2022 @ 1:00 PM, that will involve closing some roadways to all traffic, restricted parking along certain streets and detours for several hours. As the parade route is finalized, we will post the route on this site and provide residents with notice to prepare for these temporary changes. We anticipate the finial parade route will incorporate sections of the North, Central, West and South neighborhoods. We look forward to your participation and anticipate your cooperation throughout this exciting celebration of our community's history.
