Parents and guardians are asked to be alert to their children at all times as the roadways around the event will continue to be open.
Main Street private business parking lots off of Maiden Lane will still be open during this time and parking will be for customers only. Those attending the Kids Day of Lexington will need to find a place to park in a public parking lot.
