Depending on your political stance and/or interest in sitting in traffic, you're either going to want to avoid at all costs or head toward the I-275 loop on Saturday, Sept. 12. 

A Facebook group, coordinated by a human by the name of Karen, has organized a Cincinnati Trump Parade that hopes to "fill the loop" and show some American patriot pride. 

The event encourages participants to decorate their vehicles "attractively," with flair safely secured, merge onto their preferred I-275 on-ramp at 10 a.m., and remain in the right-hand lane at a suggested speed of 50-55 miles per hour for the duration of their ride. 

It also suggests that parade participants wave and flash their lights in support of the Thin Blue Line when they are seen.  

As of Sept. 2, there are nearly 30 starting/staging areas listed on the event page.

So, basically, plan your day accordingly.
