Traffic Impact – Mother Goose Parade

We wanted to alert you to an event that will impact access to our El Cajon self storage facility on West Main Street.

The 69th Annual Mother Goose Parade will be held on Saturday, November 21st at 10 a.m. Considered the largest parade West of the Mississippi, it includes over 100 colorful and exciting parade entries, such as floats, marching bands, giant helium balloons, clowns, eloquent equestrians, special guests, and of course Santa Claus at the end of the parade.

As the parade route runs along Main Street El Cajon, traffic around our A-1 Self Storage location will be impacted. Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic at 9 am on Saturday, and re-opened sometime after 2 PM. You will be able to access our facility by foot during this time, so our office will remain open for business normal hours.
