It will then proceed west (via roundabout) on LaCenter Road/Cowlitz Way and end at ilani Casino Resort parking.
Any members of the public wishing to view the procession are encouraged to do so at any point along the procession route. Viewers are asked to keep in mind that congregating along Interstate 5 is prohibited by law and is generally discouraged due to hazards and narrow shoulders.

Please do not attempt to cut into or interfere with the procession.
There are numerous overpasses that will be along the procession route. If citizens wish to view the procession from an overpass, they are asked to not park vehicles or stand in the roadway.
