The Pittsburgh Penguins are once again Stanley Cup champions, which means there will be a parade.

Here are the details provided by the city in a release.

When: The parade will begin at 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 14.

Where: The route will be similar to the ones used in 2009 and 2016, according to the city. The parade will begin on Grant Street at Liberty Avenue, turn right onto Boulevard of the Allies, turn right onto Commonwealth Place and end at the entrance to Point State Park.

What to expect: Lots (and lots and lots) of people. Last year, 400,000 people attended the parade — up from about 375,000 in 2009.

There will also be a stage on the lawn at Point State Park “for celebratory remarks from Pittsburgh Penguins personnel,” according to the city.

Planning to attend? Remember: It’s going to be hot and humid, so drink plenty of water. If you need medical attention, the Department of Public Safety says there will be medical treatment areas along the route.

Where not to park: Starting at 6 a.m., there will be no parking on the following roads, according to the Department of Public Safety:

  • Commonwealth Place from Ft. Duquesne Boulevard to Ft. Pitt Boulevard 
  • Boulevard of the Allies from Commonwealth Place to Grant Street 
  • Grant Street from the Boulevard of the Allies to Liberty Avenue 
  • Liberty Avenue from Commonwealth Place to Stanwix 
  • Stanwix from Ft. Pitt Boulevard to Ft. Duquesne 

Port Authority is also warning bus riders that several routes will be detoured. Check this page for more info.
