Assuming you are traveling north on I-17 from Phoenix, you can access the staging area by taking the Daisy Mountain Road exit (Exit # 227) and turning right at the end of the exit ramp. Take the first left turn bay in about 0.3 mile into the Circle K. There is parking behind the Circle K.
This link to the official parade map shows additional parking locations if you arrive late, or parking is full, but you will have to walk farther to the staging area.
The parade in Black Canyon City is not yet confirmed, but some of us are "hackers" and will still travel the additional 15 miles to the Rock Springs Cafe for pie (or whatever you crave,) after the Anthem Parade. Join us!
Here's some pictures from last year's Anthem/Daisy Mountain veterans' parade.
