The Los Angeles Kings will celebrate their second Stanley Cup championship in four years on Monday with a parade through the city, the team announced.
Complete with a season-ticket holder rally at the end, it will be a day of good times for those in the area who watched their team top the New York Rangers in Game 5 on Friday to finish off the series win.
The announcement from the Kings is full of details for the parade, which begins at noon local time at the intersection of 5th and Figueroa. From there, things will head south toward the STAPLES Center, where the post-parade rally for season-ticket holders will begin at 1 p.m.
As if traffic throughout the Los Angeles area wasn’t bad enough, expect things to be especially gnarled Monday as the surrounding area fills with fans. However, if you’re into excuses for excessive partying before noon, there are few better than celebrating a championship with hundreds of thousands of fellow fans.
All of the team’s biggest stars will be there, too, including Drew Doughty, Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, Jonathan Quick, Marian Gaborik and Conn Smythe winner Justin Williams.
The parade will be open to anyone who wants to attend, but the rally will be a ticketed, sold-out event. If you’re a season-ticket holder, the team will e-mail information on how to attend both.
For those unable to attend either the parade or rally, the Kings say that they anticipate both will be broadcast on Fox Sports West.
