(Left-click address, above, for a Google map to Cross of Christ Church.)
Access to the staging area will not be permitted after about 8:30 AM.
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.
Here's some pictures from last year's Anthem/Daisy Mountain veterans' parade.

Staging in Anthem at 8 a.m.
