Traffic congestion? Try the shuttle

Visitors can avoid the bottleneck of parade traffic with a Constitution Day shuttle.

All-day shuttle service is $3 per individual or family. Shuttle service is free to those in historical costumes and children 12 and younger. Hours for the shuttle are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

The 44th Annual Constitution Day Parade features about 80 entries, including seven marching bands, costumed representatives of all 44 United States presidents and their first ladies, and the Sacramento Kings Dance Team.
