The Chula Vista homecoming will begin with a brief parade outside of the stadium, which has a capacity of 6,000. Attendees should arrive from the south, using Olympic Parkway, or from the east, using Clubhouse Drive to Eastlake Parkway. Eastlake Parkway will be closed to traffic, from Clubhouse Drive to Otay Lakes Road, from approximately 8:30 a.m. until noon, in order to permit safe viewing of the parade.

The homecoming celebration on the USS Midway is free, but only for those boarding between 1 and 2:30 p.m. Admission is limited to the first 3,500 people, so it is advisable to line up before 1 p.m. Public parking is available nearby, but is expected to fill up quickly.
