The Boston Bruins have won the Stanley Cup, and they'll be having a parade to celebrate through the streets of Boston. The plans for that parade are apparently not yet hammered out, but it's likely that they will be figured out by the City and the Bruins on Thursday as the team returns home to a heroes welcome.
According to Joe Haggerty of CSN New England, the parade could be held on Friday, but that isn't yet an official thing. Presumably, if it's not held on Friday afternoon, it would be held on Saturday. Most parades take place during the weekday, and that's preferred by planners because the amount of traffic caused by a weekend parade when people are off from work would be a logistical nightmare.
You know, as if several hundred thousand people isn't enough. The parade will be Boston's first since 2008, when the Celtics won the NBA title. It'll be approximately their 604th parade since the new millennium.
