It is finally over. Damage is done.
At times, the Red Sox’ 2018 postseason was a rollercoaster of emotions—kudos to anyone who sat through all 18 of Friday night’s innings. But, with only one game lost in each postseason series, it was more frequently a celebration of great baseball and great victories.
Tomorrow, the celebrations reach a crescendo as fans flock to the streets for World Series victory parade.
The parade will begin at 11 a.m. on Lansdowne Street in Fenway, then proceed to Ipswich Street, then Boylston Street, eventually ending on Staniford Street. Take a look at the graphic below for a more detailed view of tomorrow’s parade’s route:
In line with tradition, Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez and Co. will be touring the streets in duck boats. Arrive early to ensure good access to the parade—in past years it has drawn over 500,000 people and this year promises to be no different.
Prior to the parade, Mayor Martin Walsh called for sensible celebration.
“Don’t do anything on the streets of Boston on Wednesday morning that you wouldn’t do in your own house,” he said. “Be respectful of the city, be respectful of the property, be respectful of the people, be respectful of the businesses, be respectful of the Red Sox.”
Parking restrictions will be in place on Jersey Street, Van Ness Street, Lansdowne Street and Ipswich Street from Tuesday until the end of Wednesday. Several more will be enforced on Wednesday. For more information, check the City of Boston website.
