The parade to honor the 2013 World Series champion Boston Red Sox is set for Saturday at 10 a.m. ET. The champs will depart from Gate C at Fenway Park in a duck boat, as has been the standard for recent championship teams in the city.
From the ballpark, the parade will continue down Boylston Street and will finish with a splash into the Charles River. A live stream of the event will be shown on RedSox.com and MLB.com beginning at 9 a.m.

Fans will have the opportunity to be included in an Instagram promotion titled "#MyParade," according to MLB.com's Ian Browne, and one fan will win a baseball autographed by Shane Victorino by posting a photo on the social networking app using the aforementioned hashtag.
The Red Sox finished off the St. Louis Cardinals in six games with a 6-1 victory on Wednesday in Boston. The championship capped off a worst-to-first season for Boston, which has won three titles in the last 10 seasons.
