The K-Days Parade will make its way through the downtown core on Friday morning and drivers will need to be aware of a number of road closures.
The parade starts at 10 a.m. and runs east along Jasper Avenue from 108 Street to 101 Street, before heading north for a block. The parade then makes its way west along 103 Avenue, coming to an end at 103 Street.
Global News will live stream the parade online on Friday morning. Community reporter Margeaux Maron and weather specialist Mike Sobel will host Global Edmonton’s online parade coverage.
