The City of Boston is holding its annual Veterans Day Parade Saturday and is advising drivers that the event might affect traffic downtown.
The procession will kick off at 1 p.m. at the intersection of Boylston and Charles streets on the edge of Boston Common, the city said. The parade will run east down Boylston Street, turn north on Tremont Street, and continue onto Cambridge Street before ending at City Hall Plaza.
Traffic will be detoured off that route from around 12:50 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, the city said.
Parking will also be affected on streets along the parade route. A tow zone for the event will be in effect on both sides of Boylston Street from Charles to Tremont streets, on both sides of Tremont Street from Boylston to Cambridge streets, and on both sides of Cambridge Street from Tremont Street to the driveway onto City Hall Plaza.
Those planning to attend the parade should also get ready to bundle up. Temperatures Saturday could dip to the low 20s, threatening to break the record Nov. 11 low of 24 degrees. Despite the freezing weather, though, the day is expected to be sunny.
