The Montevideo City Council on Monday night approved a route and scheduling change for the 75th annual Montevideo Fiesta Days Parade. The parade will take place at 11am on Saturday, June 20, 2020. The parade route has been moved from 12th Street back to the original route through 1st Street.
According to City Council and Fiesta Board member Steve Sulflow, the route change was made after hearing requests from several downtown business owners. The scheduling change from Sunday afternoon to Saturday morning was made in hopes of attracting more marching bands and visitors from surrounding communities.
Additional announcements regarding the 75th annual Fiesta celebration will be made throughout the coming months.
