I wonder what prevents them from outlining their route to include just about anywhere they might go.

As a side note- At Grey Cup 1998 in Vancouver, the city did not allow a parade through the busy downtown.  So a group of fans asked for, and got, a protest permit that included a route.  We had a 'protest' that included fans in costume, mascots, drunken revelry, and several police pipe bands from other cities.  We picked up random citizens along the way and added to our numbers.  We marched down Robson the wrong direction and brought traffic to a standstill.

The people stuck in traffic were generally in favour, The cops wanted to do something, but how do you bust up a parade without looking like assholes?

It was glorious.
