Festival parking - Please be aware that traffic and parking in the village will be very busy on festival day. Plan accordingly! Carpool if possible. Festival parking will mainly be at the East Burke Storage shed lot on Route 114 (a three minute walk to the festival). When that is full, you may need to park just down the road at Darling Recreational Park on Route 114 (across from the cemetery just past the Mountain Rd/114 intersection.  A 5-10 minute walk to the green).

Please drive carefully and slowly through the village and do not park in private business lots or areas marked, 'No Parking.'
Route 114 from the East Burke Fire Station to Pinkham Road will be closed for the parade from 9:45-10:45am.
