6 Comments

Hockey fans in Pittsburgh partied into the night Sunday, as their Penguins captured the 2016 Stanley Cup.

They’ll have another chance to celebrate, as the Penguins have their Stanley Cup parade scheduled for Wednesday.

Here are the details:

The parade route will follow a similar route as previous championship parades that took place in 2009. The route will begin on Grant Street at Liberty Avenue, travel along Grant Street to the Boulevard of the Allies, turn right onto the Boulevard of the Allies and will end at the intersection of the Boulevard of the Allies and Stanwix Street. A stage will be set up at Stanwix Street for celebratory remarks from Pittsburgh Penguins personnel.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the city is expecting a crowd of more than 375,000 for the parade.

“Given the level of enthusiasm that Pittsburgh fans have presented so far we’re expecting the crowd to be larger that what appeared in 2009,” Katie O’Malley, spokeswoman for Mayor Bill Peduto, told the Tribune-Review.
