Sunset Drive will also be closed at Thousand Oaks Boulevard.

 

Citizens will not be able to leave these areas in a vehicle during the parade. Only in an emergency will vehicles be allowed access under supervision by law enforcement. These closures will directly affect the residences and businesses on Sunset Drive and the residences on Los Robles Road and Royal Oaks Drive. Please plan ahead if you know you have a need to leave the area in a vehicle during the parade times. As soon as the last participants in the parade pass by the closures, the area will be re-opened to vehicle traffic.

 

Erbes Road between Thousand Oaks Boulevard and Hillcrest Drive will also be closed during this event. Erbes Road will be used to allow shuttle vehicles to stage for pick-up of the parade participants. There will be no traffic allowed southbound on Erbes Road. If a resident needs to leave on Erbes Road, they will do so at the direction of a law enforcement person working that area.

 

We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this event. Please enjoy the celebration.
