Drivers may want to leave early if they're going to downtown Davenport tomorrow morning. Quad City Arts' Festival of Trees Parade kicks off at 10:30 am at the corner of Pershing and 3rd streets. 

The floats and huge balloons will travel west until they reach Scott Street to go south for a block. Then the route turns east onto 2nd Street and back to Pershing to end.
