Parade attendees are encouraged to utilize the Fun, Fast, and Free LinkFM the night of the parade. Parking will be available at the Moorhead Center Mall and LinkFM will shuttle attendees Downtown before the parade until 5:30 p.m. LinkFM will not run during the parade. LinkFM will resume service after the parade from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will be two LinkFM buses on route to reduce congestion as well as decrease wait times after the parade.
