12654693_604967512987355_6413049522912006697_nThe Hamilton-Wenham Little League season-opening parade is planned for Saturday morning and drivers in the area should expect short road closures and delays.

The parade will start at Buker Elementary School in Wenham at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 30 and head up Perkins Street to Route 1A (Main Street in Wenham) and head north into Hamilton.

In the center of Hamilton the parade will turn left from Bay Road (Route 1A) onto Railroad Avenue, then left on to Union Street and end at Cheeseman Field at Pingree Park, across the street from Hamilton-Wenham Public Library.

Wenham police will lead the parade and there will also be several fire trucks involved, according to Hamilton police Lt. Scott Janes. A Hamilton police officer will assist with traffic at the intersection of Bay Road (Route 1A) and Railroad Avenue.

The Little League parade route will be the same as it has been for years and Wenham police has a map from last year that shows the route.

Drivers should anticipate traffic delays along the parade route for about 30-40 minutes, Janes said.
