A long-standing tradition of parking vehicles along the Preston Night Rodeo parade route will come to an end next summer.
Preston City officials have been discussing off and on for several months the dangers and inconvenience caused by people parking cars, trucks, trailers and other vehicles along the route, which extends several blocks on 100 East and State streets.
Parades are held each evening during the three-day That Famous Preston Night Rodeo the end of July each year.
Cars and other vehicles have been parked along 100 East this summer for weeks to “save a spot,” said council president Saundra Hubbard. “This is just ridiculous.”
Hubbard said city officials have fielded complaints about the parking problem from officials at Franklin County Medical Center, Larsen-Sant Library and several homeowners.
