Blackwood Kiwanis Little League opens its season Saturday, and will hold its annual opening day parade Saturday morning.

The parade begins at 8 a.m. in the Rite Aid parking lot on the Black Horse Pike (Route 168) and continues south to Marshall Avenue, ending at the little league field on Railroad Avenue.

The Black Horse Pike will be temporarily closed to all traffic from Church Street to Davistown Road between 8 a.m. and 8:45 a.m., according to Gloucester Township Police. No parking will be allowed on the Black Horse Pike between Church Street and Marshall Avenue.

Drivers are encouraged to follow the marked detour route to avoid delays. Officers will also be stationed at closure points to assist with directions.

For detour purposes, southbound traffic is to follow Route 168 south to Church Street to Erial Road to Davistown Road to Route 168. Northbound traffic is to follow Route 168 north to Davistown Road to Erial Road to Church Street to Route 168.

Drivers are asked to use caution when in the area. To avoid delays, drivers should seek an alternate route of travel.

The season begins with five games at 11 a.m. and wraps up with a game between the Bulls and the Hooks at 8 p.m., according to the little league's website.

Lol, Zanghi doesn't. Today's weather was predicted all week. At 7 am he instructed all members the Parade was still on. He wanted to have his annual "Smooze-fest" with all his GT Council buddies so bad that he still made all the little kids go to the parade route at 8 am, stand around and get soaking wet, only to finally tell them to go home. It's RAINING - DUH! Poor kids, felt sorry for them. Great foresight Mr. Prez!! PS- He's still running the Knights program at the townships fields that Little League told him to stop
