Blossomtime Parade – Limited Marina Access Saturday May 14
BLOSSOMTIME PARADE THIS SATURDAY MAY 14 – LIMITED ACCESS TO PIER 33
For the first time since 2019, St. Joseph will host the Blossomtime Festival Grand Floral Parade, this Saturday, May 14 – which means that it is one of the most unusual days of the year here at Pier 33.
From approximately 10am thru 4pm, there will be no vehicle access to Anchors Way. Any Pier 33 East Marina boaters desiring access to their boats must be on site by 10am. After that, the road is closed for access, so that the parade route (preceded by a walk/run event) can be secured. The road will then re-open at about 4pm.
We are advised by the St. Joseph Department of Public Safety that vehicles will be allowed off of the island through a special route. Boaters will be able to leave the island during the road closure period But will not be able to return until after approximately 4pm.
Our South Marina boaters will be able to access both South Marina entrances, but plan to approach from the South on Langley Avenue to avoid intersecting the parade route through downtown St. Joe.
For boaters who need to visit our East Marina (East docks,showroom, storage and service), please be sure to arrive on site no later than 10am on Saturday May 14.
