Floral Fete Traffic and Parking Changes

By Staff Report | News

SARATOGA SPRINGS — With the Floral Fete Promenade stepping off at 7:30 pm from the intersection of Broadway and the Arterial (CV Whitney Highway/SR9/SR50), motorists can expect delays in the downtown area between 7:15 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., on Friday, August 2.

From that intersection, the promenade will go down Broadway to Congress Park.  Broadway between the Arterial and Spring Street will be closed at 7:30 pm. It will re-open as the last promenade entry passes.   The less-than-one-mile route will also affect the side streets that cross Broadway in the downtown vicinity. The Arterial and the Broadway intersections within the Floral Fete route are expected to be closed to traffic for approximately 15 minutes, while the promenade passes.    

On August 2, parking restrictions will be implemented on the west side of North Broadway, and Congress Park will be open only to pedestrian traffic.

During the pre-promenade staging, Walton Street, from Woodlawn to Broadway, and Long Alley will be closed at 5:00 pm for registration and line-up of the Saratoga County residents who have entered the non-motorized, self-decorated segment of the promenade.

At 8 p.m., the Ice Cream Social will begin in Congress Park with entertainment, free ice cream, cookies and water, as well as free Carousel rides. Backpacks, alcohol, coolers and pets are prohibited during this outdoor, community 150th Birthday celebration.
