Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is just as excited as fans about the Red Sox World Series win.

He expressed his Red Sox pride Thursday, saying, "This team embodies the perseverance and resilience of our City. We love our bearded Red Sox and on Saturday we'll show our appreciation and celebrate a very special championship in the City of Boston. Have fun, be responsible. Saturday will be a great day in Boston."

This Saturday morning beginning at 10:00 at Fenway Park, the victory parade – and 24 duck boats – will proceed throughout the city. The route will be:

  • Start on Boylston Street at Ipswich Street;
  • Left on Tremont;
  • Left on Cambridge Street;
  • Right on Blossom Street;
  • Finish in the Charles River

If you are going to the parade, watch out for parking restrictions across the city. The City of Boston encourages fans to use public transportation and/or expect road closures. Traffic will be banned along the parade route beginning at 9:00 AM until the conclusion of the parade at approximately 1:00 PM. 

The Boston Police Department will have extra officers on hand throughout the day.
