The route starts at the Frank Gruich Community Center on Howard Avenue in East Biloxi. It will travel west on Howard, through the MLK Boulevard loop, before turning back onto Howard. The parade turns north onto Caillavet and east on Esters, ending at Busch Park at 645 Esters.

There is no Battle of the Bands is planned this year.
