Are roads going to be closed off for this event, i.e. Main and Albion (from where to where)? Any others?

Main St and Albion will be closed off to traffic. I believe that Main will be closed from the Rookery to the Galvin. Albion is closed from Main to North Ave. Lincoln St and the parking lot are closed as well. I suspect that Water St will be closed at Crescent.

Thanks, John; some friends wanted to take me to Cravings for a pre-birthday ice cream social. It was good to know how extensively the streets were going to be closed off so we could plan our detours around it and still park fairly close. Thanks to your info we knew better than to attempt Main Street. We went down North to Avon and parked this side of the crest. Then we only had to walk down to Main and 1 1/2 blocks. It was really nice so many people came out to celebrate my pre-birthday and even called it an Italian Festival...;>) LOL!
