Alexandria is located in central Minnesota roughly half-way between Fargo, North Dakota, and Minneapolis, Minnesota. From Interstate 94, turn into Alexandria at exit number 103. Exit to the North going toward the town. (You'll be on Broadway/Highway 27/Highway 29 ... all three roads converge and become the main street through the city). The parade travels on Broadway in the downtown area.

If you want to visit the Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce office, continue north all the way into town. The Chamber is located at 206 Broadway, just a few steps beyond 3rd Avenue and directly across from the town's most famous landmark: the 26-foot Big Ole viking statue.
