(KMOV.com) -- Big changes were announced Wednesday to the 2013 Veiled Prophet Parade.
The 136th annual parade is changing both times and route.
This year, the parade kicks off at a new start time 9:30 a.m., and instead of heading down Market Street, it will begin at 14th and Olive and head east. The parade will make its way along Tucker, Washington Avenue and down 4th street. It will end on Market Street by the City Gardens.
“We’re very excited about this and we hope that everyone who lives and has establishments on Wash Ave will embrace the opportunity to have this party brought to their front door,” said Grand Marshall Bill Macon.
The weekend will kick off with a block party the night before the parade; July 3rd from 5-10 p.m..
