LANSING, Ill. (April 8, 2019) – The Lansing Police Department has sent information to Lansing businesses in preparation for next month’s Good Neighbor Day Parade. “This is a major annual event,” wrote Lt. Scott Bailey, “and should attract over 125 entries.”

Bailey also let people know that because the parade staging area is 178th Street and Wentworth Avenue, Wentworth will be closed from 178th to Ridge Road before the parade begins, approximately 11:30am–3:30pm.

The entire parade route will be closed to all non-parade traffic between 2:00 and 4:00pm. The route includes Ridge Road between Wentworth and Torrence, and Torrence between Ridge and 179th Street The parade will end at 179th Street and Arcadia Avenue, on the west side of Lan Oak Park.
“Motorists having to travel through Lansing during the time of the parade are encouraged to seek alternate routes west of Torrence Avenue or east of Wentworth Avenue,” advised Bailey.
