Now that the Golden State Warriors are officially NBA Champions ... again, it's time to celebrate!
The team and its fans will celebrate the Warriors' third title in four seasons with a festive parade on Tuesday starting at 11 a.m. at Broadway and 11th Street in Oakland. More than 1 million people are expected to flock to the parade, transforming Oakland into a raucous sea of blue and gold.
This year's parade will be different than previous renditions, according to the team. There will be no post-parade rally near Lake Merritt, but fans will still get a chance to see their favorite players up close and personal as they cruise along the parade route.
After starting at the intersection of Broadway and 11th Street, the parade will continue straight along Broadway toward 20th Street. From there, it will turn right and proceed toward Harrison Street, turn right again and then turn left at 19th Street. Parade participants will continue along 19th Street and eventually hang a right onto Lakeside Drive before wrapping up the celebration at 13th and Oak streets.
Fans can begin to stake their claims along the sidewalks beginning at 6:30 a.m., according to the team.
When it comes to making the journey to the parade, fans are highly encouraged to take public transportation, such as BART and AC Transit, which are both slated to ramp up service in order to accomodate the large crowds. Parking around the parade route will be "significantly limited," according to the team.
Live coverage of the parade will begin at 10 a.m. on NBC Bay Area, an hour prior to the event, as well as online via livestream.
