12/4/17 Road Closure: FWB Christmas Parade

On Monday, December 4, 2017, Eglin Parkway will be closed from First Street to Garnett Avenue beginning at approximately 6:15 p.m. due to the Fort Walton Beach Christmas Parade, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. The detour near the First Street parade route entrance will take effect at approximately 4:00 p.m. Eglin Parkway will remain closed after the parade this year until approximately 10:00 p.m., to address concerns about parade debris.

“We are keeping the road closed longer this year to allow City crews to extensively clean up all of the debris and litter within the right of way resulting from the parade,” said City Manager Michael Beedie.

Parade goers and motorists are advised to plan ahead, take alternate routes, and be prepared for additional travel delays this year.
