Red Sox World Series Parade Wednesday, October 31

The Boston Red Sox defeated the L.A. Dodgers four games to one to become World Series Champions! In celebration, the City of Boston will host a victory parade on Wednesday, October 31, beginning at 11 a.m. at Fenway Park.

Red Sox players, managers, coaches and staff will ride the famous Boston duck boats through the heart of the city where the streets will be lined with fans. The parade will begin on Lansdowne Street, travel down Ipswich Street, and make a left on Boylston Street. From there, this rolling rally will continue onto Tremont Street, then Cambridge Street and finally make a right onto Staniford Street, where the parade will end.
The black line above shows the parade route. The red line indicates parking restrictions. As you can see, there will be many traffic and parking bans in effect. Fans attending the parade are strongly encouraged to leave their vehicles at home. The MBTA will be providing extra service and the commuter rail trains will have additional coach cars. Learn more about schedules at mbta.com.

  1. The route said right on New Sudbury Street, not Staniford Street, only parking is banned on Staniford. The Patriots and Sox parades have never went down Staniford. New Sudbury Street to my understanding is where it ends.

      1. The route I guess changed again , yes update there are going diwn my street (Staniford) Red Sox never does, but it’s all good I’m all ready. I just saw the police setting up the barricades. Thank you Amanda
