For the second straight year — and third time in the last four years — the Golden State Warriors will be parading through the streets of Oakland to celebrate an NBA championship.
The Warriors defeated LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night in Cleveland 108-85 to cap off a four-game sweep of the team they've battled in the NBA Finals each of the last four years.
More than 1 million people are expected to descend on downtown Oakland for the parade on Tuesday, June 12 to celebrate the victory. In a change from previous years, there will be no post-parade rally. Here's what else you need to know.
The parade is planned for Tuesday, June 12, and it's expected to start at 11 a.m. Fans can begin lining the parade route at 6:30 a.m.
The parade will begin in downtown Oakland on Broadway at 11th Street, turning right on 20th Street, turning right on Harrison Street to 19th Street, and right on Lakeside Drive, ending on Oak and 13th Streets.
Public transit will probably be your best bet to make it to the parade.
BART will be running rush-hour service all day long. The transit agency recommends getting off at the 12th Street and 19th Street stations to get to the parade. For folks coming from the Warm Springs direction, it suggests getting of at Lake Merritt and not waiting for the Richmond Orange Line train.
