November 1 -Tomorrow’s Nationals Championship Parade celebrating the team becoming the city’s first World Series champion in 95 years will begin at 2 p.m. at the intersection of 15th St. and Constitution Ave. NW and conclude at Pennsylvania Ave. and Third St. NW.
A rally will be held at 3:30 p.m. at the conclusion of the parade.
“We are proud of our team who went to Houston and finished the fight, winning their first-ever World Series and delivering another championship to our sports capital,” D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser said this morning while announcing tomorrow’s events. “Now it is our turn to deliver a parade of the ages to celebrate our Nats.”
The Nationals defeated the host Houston Astros, 6-2, in Game 7 on Wednesday to clinch the championship. The Senators, guided by Hall of Fame manager Bucky Harris, won the city’s previous World Series in 1924. The Senators also went seven games before defeating the New York Giants, 4-3, on rookie Earl McNeely’s walk-off double in the 12th inning.
Parade organizers are expecting tens of thousands of fans to attend the parade and rally, which will feature the team’s players, coaches, front office staff and the World Series trophy. In June last year, the Capitals had over 100,000 fans attend their victory celebration after winning the Stanley Cup and ending D.C.’s 26-year championship drought.
