Roads closed for fest

The success and popularity of the Steveston Salmon Festival means big crowds descending on the historic fishing village and surrounding neighbourhoods.

The success and popularity of the Steveston Salmon Festival means big crowds descending on the historic fishing village and surrounding neighbourhoods.

So, on July 1, to accommodate festival-goers and the annual parade route, there will be some road closures to be aware of.

All parking and road regulations on that day will go into effect at 9 a.m.

For the parade route the road closures include: Chatham Street, from Garry Point Park to Third Avenue; Third Avenue between Chatham and Moncton Streets; and Moncton Street from Third Avenue to Railway Avenue.

An important note, during the parade, access to all streets south of Moncton Street along Bayview Street will be closed to all traffic from 9 a.m. to noon.

Most of the roads around Steveston will be reopened at the conclusion of the parade - at noon, approximately - except for Moncton Street, which will remain closed to traffic between Third Avenue and Bayview Street (across from the RCMP's community policing station) until 5 p.m. to allow a safe, vehcile-free area for those attending the Salmon Festival grounds.
