2015 White Cane Day Marching Routes and Activities
Everyone will gather in front of the State Capitol between 8:30- 9:00AM. The Capitol is located at 11th Street and Congress Avenue. Marchers should gather in front of the Capitol between the street and the entrance gate. It is very important that people do not stand in the street or behind the entrance gate on Capitol grounds as we do not have a permit for that.
The march begins promptly at 9:15AM. We will not leave before 9:15 AM to allow time for all participants to arrive.
Start on the North side of 11th Street at Congress Avenue. March South on the west side of Congress. Cross 11th, 10th, 9th, 8th, 7th, 6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd and continue to Caesar Chavez (1st Street). Do not cross Caesar Chavez. Turn West (right) and cross Colorado and Lavaca. After crossing Lavaca, City Hall will be to the North (right). Find a seat if possible. Please reserve seating for children, elderly, and others with physical disabilities. First row of outdoor seating will be reserved for sponsors.
