BOSTON (WHDH) - Red Sox fans went wild Sunday night after Boston clinched the World Series championship in Los Angeles. Now, they’re ready to celebrate with the team in Beantown.
Mayor Marty Walsh announced Monday morning that a victory parade would take place Wednesday at 11 a.m.
“I want to congratulate Red Sox Nation for our ninth world championship here in Boston,” he said. “This is an all-time great team that we had. A lot of people enjoyed watching this team. Everybody contributed.”
The forecast for Wednesday looks promising with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures near 60 degrees.
A number of parking restrictions will be in place along the parade route, which will start on Landsdowne Street and end on New Sudbury Street.
The parking restrictions will start at 12 a.m. on Tuesday. Violators will be towed.
The MBTA will add extra service for fans. Passengers are asked to leave backpacks, coolers, strollers and other large items at home.
As many as a million people are expected to attend the celebration, which happens to fall on Halloween. Those who plan on wearing a costume will not be allowed to carry replica firearms.
Boston Police Commissioner William Gross says public drinking will not be tolerated.
“We ask everyone to act responsibly and be respectful of the other revelers in the parade,” he said.
Both uniform and plain-clothes officers will line the route and monitor the crowd.
The Red Sox won their fourth World Series title in 15 seasons when they beat the Dodgers, 5-1, in Game 5.
