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.

Pets are allowed at parades. However, for the public's safety, Chapter 14 of the city of Paducah Code of Ordinances lists requirements to bring a dog to a special community event such as a parade or festival. 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.
