Thursday's the annual tree lighting and Christmas Parade in downtown Watertown, so traffic patterns will be different for a few hours.
Starting at 3:30 p.m., all travel lanes on the north side of Public Square will be closed to traffic and on-street parking will be restricted.
Court Street will be closed to traffic for the parade beginning at about 5:15 p.m.
Portions of Mill Street and Black River Parkway will be closed from 6:45 p.m. until the end of the parade.
Temporary barricades, traffic cones, and signs will be in place showing motorists how to detour around the festivities.
Parking will be available at downtown city parking lots at the Jefferson County Human Services Building's north and south parking lots after 5 p.m.
