From 12 p.m. until approximately 12:30 p.m., they will complete a loop and a half around Postoffice and Church between 24th and 20th Street, passing down Church Street once and Postoffice Street twice, before coming to a stop on Postoffice between 20th and 21st Street for judging.

Once the golf cart parade is completed, all the golf carts will line up/park on Postoffice between 20th and 21st Streets until no later than 5 p.m. This one-block closure is expected to occur from approximately 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
