Guam - Pickup for permits for the 69th Liberation Day Parade starts tomorrow.

Department of Parks & Recreations director Ray Blas tells KUAM he isn't surprised loyal parade goers are already lining up outside the Paseo Stadium in Hagatna where permits are set for distribution Thursday at 8 a.m.

Blas explains permits will go out fast. Unlike previous years, there are only 125 spaces sectioned off for this year's festivities. "What we did is we did not go all the way down to Adelup on either side. You have to understand that there's private firms. Private businesses. Private owners that own that. You don't expect me to sell the sidewalk in front of them I don't think that that's fair," he said.

Permitted spots along the beach begin at Johnny's Bar and Grill, formerly known as Downtown Kieu's and run all the way down to Boat Basin.

On the opposite stretch, better known as Da'og Strip Park, permitted spaces start from KFC to the Bank of Hawaii.

If you go, bring a photo ID as well as $50 per slot and a $75 cleaning deposit to be returned within three working days following the event.

Camping along the parade route may begin as early as 8am Saturday morning, July 20 as Blas says he is working with the Guam Police Department to block off outer lanes for safety purposes. Permits expire at 6p m Sunday, July 21.
