The 44th annual Labor Day Parade, conducted by the Western Kentucky Labor Day Committee, will begin at 9:30 a.m. Monday in Paducah. The parade, which attracts on average 40-60 entries, will follow Broadway starting at Second Street and then head west on Broadway until it disbands at Fountain Avenue (17th Street).
City officials said the parade route will close at 9 a.m. and remain closed until the parade safely passes. The theme of this year's parade is "It Takes U and I to Make Union." Following the parade, there will be entertainment at Carson Park until 5 p.m. including live music, food vendors, and activities for children.

The dog must be licensed by McCracken County Animal Control or by any other state or county and restrained by a leash or lead that is no longer than 3 feet.
Paducah City Hall and the Parks & Recreation Department office, located at 1400 H.C. Mathis Drive, will be closed Monday for the Labor Day holiday.
