The Boston Red Sox were able to take home their third World Series win in ten seasons on Wednesday night, after a big win over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6 at Fenway Park. The celebration for the Red Sox began immediately as their months of hard work paid off, but the celebration isn’t done just yet.
As is always the case with championship winning teams, the Red Sox will share their World Series title with the city during the championship parade which will wind through Boston.
There is not a date or route currently set, Nick O’Malley of MassLive.com says that history suggests the parade could begin near Fenway Park and cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon at some point during the rolling celebration.
The exact parade route has yet to be released, but historically, the parade has started out near Fenway Park, continued down Boylston Street, passed through Copley Square and then gone on further downtown and, if the route is extended like it was in 2004, into the Charles River itself.
If the parade does go down Boylston Street (and it almost certainly will), the parade will cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon, a detail that will hardly go unnoticed by the Red Sox and parade organizers.
We will update you with the date, time and where to watch as the information becomes available.
