WASHINGTON (WMAL) – Caps fans now have the answer to the question they’ve been asking all day: when is the Stanley Cup victory parade?
The parade will be Tuesday at 11 a.m. along Constitution Ave. It will start at Constitution and 17th St NW and proceed along Constitution to 7th St NW where it will turn right and end in an ALLCAPS rally at 7th St. NW and the National Mall, according to a statement by Monumental Sports.
The parade is free, and anyone can attend. Parking along the parade route will be extremely limited, so Monumental Sports is encouraging people to take Metro or rideshare.
Speakers and other details about the ALLCAPS rally will be released soon, according to Monumental Sports.
“We ask everyone to continue to Rock the Red responsibly on Tuesday!” the statement said.
Earlier this afternoon National Park Service spokesperson Mike Litterest told WMAL that Caps owners Monumental Sports applied for a parade permit before the big win Thursday night. The permit estimates “100,000 + +” people will attend.
“There’s precedent from, you know, the Redskins parades of the ’80s and the early ’90s,” Litterest said.
According to records, Litterest said about 700,000 people attended the Super Bowl victory parade for the Redskins in 1998.
