Fire up the duck boats and dress up like Batman, because the Boston Red Sox are bringing home the 2018 World Series championship Wednesday, October 31st! That's right, on Halloween!

So here are some FAQ's that you need to know about the parade?

WHEN?

Wednesday, October 31st at 11am. 

WHERE?

The route will begin at Fenway Park, then go down Lansdowne Street, go right on Ipswich Street, go left on Boylston Street, then on to Tremont Street at Boston Common, on to Cambridge Street, and wrap up at New Sudbury Street. Click here to download the map.

Mistress Carrie will also be hosting a special LIVE broadcast along the parade route at Whisky Saigon at 116 Boylston Street from 10am to 3pm.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

If you think driving in to the city will be a breeze, think again. Take an Uber, Lyft, public transit, bike, walk, parachute, or any other driving alternative because there are going to be plenty of parking restrictions that will make your morning commute impossible. Even Mayor Marty Walsh implored fans not to drive to the parade. Thankfully the MBTA will be offering additional services and the commuter rail will have additional cars.

HOW WILL THE WEATHER BE?

Despite a cold and wet weekend, we can expect a dry and sunny day in time for the parade with 60-degrees being the temperature high.

HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE THERE?

Since nearly all of Red Sox nation will be present, not nearly enough! If past parades have taught us anything (because we've had so many), we can expect to see anywhere between 500,000 and 1 million fans.

ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?

Come out, have fun, dress for the occaision, and stay out of trouble. And when I say "stay out of trouble," that includes: don't break stuff, climb on stuff, throw stuff, hit stuff, and any other kind of destructive behavior.
