Boston city leaders have announced plans for the Boston Red Sox victory parade.

Date and Time:

The victory parade is scheduled for Wednesday at 11:00 a.m., rain or shine.

Parade Route:

The parade will step-off from Fenway Park at 11:00 and then:

  • Head down Lansdowne Street
  • Take a right onto Ipswich Street
  • Take a left on Boylston to Tremont Street
  • Go down Cambridge Street
  • End on New Sudbury Street

Weather:

The wet weather will be out of here by the time of the parade! The 22News Storm Team is expecting seasonably mild temperatures for parade time.

Public Safety:

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said they’re expecting big crowds, and are preparing for a safe celebration. In past years, Boston victory parades have drawn more than a half-million people.

Walsh asked that fans take public transportation into the city, due to traffic and parking restrictions that will be in place. He also asked that fans respect the city.

“We are a city of champions, so let’s celebrate like champions,” the mayor said.

There will be a heavy police presence along the parade route to make sure that celebrations don’t get out of control. 

Boston Police Commissioner William Gross said out of the thousands of people who celebrated the championship Sunday night, there was only one arrest. 

He said he is hoping that people can celebrate responsibly again on Wednesday:

  • No public drinking
  • No weapons
