Catching the Maine State Parade live tomorrow won’t be as easy as flicking on the television and kicking back. The ninth annual parade, sponsored by WCSH-TV 6 and WLBZ-TV 2, will start at 12:30 p.m. at the staging area on Frye Street near Bates College and proceed down Main Street until it disbands at Great Falls Plaza in Auburn. However, the broadcast won’t start until 3:30 p.m. on WCSH-TV as the Boston Celtics – Cleveland Cavaliers game will be broadcast live. Traffic will be detoured around much of the parade route and police are advising drivers to avoid the downtown areas in Lewiston and Auburn between noon and 4 p.m.
