In light of the Texas Rose Festival Parade on Saturday, the Tyler Police Department will have traffic in the area stopped for a few hours.

The parade is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Front Street at Glenwood Boulevard and follow a westward route on Front Street and through the East Texas State Fairgrounds.

Front Street traffic will be stopped from Palace Avenue to South Lyons Avenue beginning at about 7:30 a.m. or 8 a.m. Traffic will return to normal once the parade is over at about noon, Tyler Police spokesman Don Martin said.

The parade will feature more than 120 entries, including custom floats for the rose queen and her court, a color guard, bands, car clubs, dance teams, Shriners and dignitaries.
