Hard to believe that the Christmas City Of The North Parade is coming up on Friday already.  The parade will take the same downtown Duluth route it's taken the past several years, which will lead to some changes in traffic and bus routes.

The Northland's NewsCenter is reporting that buses will be detoured from Superior Street, between Fifth Avenue West and Lake Avenue from 6:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

All buses regularly scheduled to travel through the downtown area during the parade will follow the standard DTA parade routing on First and Second Streets.

Bundle up and enjoy the parade!
