Pittsburgh to hold Stanley Cup parade on Wednesday


The city of Pittsburgh continues to celebrate the Penguins’ second straight Stanley Cup championship.

On Monday, the city announced details for the Penguins’ Stanley Cup parade, which will take place Wednesday morning.

Here are details of the route, from WTAE:

The parade route will follow a similar route as the parades in 2009 and 2016. This year, it will end at Point State Park.

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, turn right onto Commonwealth Place and will end at the intersection of Penn Avenue and Commonwealth Place, at the entrance of Point State Park.

Last year, a crowd of 400,000 people lined the streets of Pittsburgh to take in the parade following the Penguins’ six-game Stanley Cup victory over San Jose.

The Penguins defeated the Nashville Predators on Sunday to win the title once again.
