Get ready – youth baseball players will be marching through the downtown this weekend as part of the Hamilton-Wenham Little League season-opening parade.
It is planned for Saturday morning, April 29 at 9 a.m. and drivers in the area should expect short road closures and minor delays.
The parade will start at Buker Elementary School in Wenham 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.
Hamilton police have assigned additional officers to assist with traffic, according to Hamilton Police Lt. Scott Janes, but residents should anticipate detours and minor traffic delays.
The Little League parade is a great community tradition and family members are encouraged to line the streets of Hamilton-Wenham and cheer on the players, according to Hamilton-Wenham Little League.
