Due to a TxDOT construction project on the San Antonio Street bridge, the 2019 Comal County Fair Parade will use Seguin Avenue.

Closure of the San Antonio Street bridge takes place Sept. 3 as construction begins on the 16-month project, which is expected to alter the plans of a number of downtown festivals.

The city announced on Aug. 29 the annual Comal County Fair Parade was the first of those affected. The 2019 route avoids the bridge by using South Seguin Avenue from Hampe Street northwest to Bridge Street.

According to a city press release, staging for the parade will take place along West Nacogdoches Street from South Guenther Avenue to South Seguin. The parade officially begins at 10 a.m..

“The public is encouraged to plan for delays in the area and to seek alternate routes if they are not entering the area to view or participate in the parade,” the release said.

Beginning at 8 a.m., intersections along South Seguin will be closed to facilitate the parade route, including East Faust Street, Hampe, Elm Street, Jahn Street, Butcher Street, Garden Street, Coll Street, Mill Street and Bridge Street.

Additional closures will take place at the intersection of Zink Street and Landa Street, West San Antonio Street and Comal Avenue, East Nacogdoches and South Seguin and the 100 Block of W. Nacogdoches, the release said.

Additional information is available from the Comal County Fair Association at 830-625-1505.
