The Miami Heat will celebrate their back-to-back championships in style on Monday in downtown Miami with a victory parade that culminates in an invite-only rally at AmericanAirlines Arena for season ticket holders.
The parade will begin at 11 a.m. ET at the corner of Southwest Eighth Street and Second Avenue. The parade will travel east on Eighth before going north on Brickell Avenue and then north on Biscayne Boulevard to the arena. The victory march is expected to run until about 12:30 p.m. before heading into the stadium. Here's a map of the route courtesy of the Miami Herald:
There will be increased transportation options in Miami for the parade, with Metrorail trains running every five minutes to all stations near the arena and additional cars for Metromover riders. Free parking will be available at Park and Ride lots. The Miami Herald has more information on transportation.
For those who can't make it to the parade, the celebration will be televised on Sun Sports, with coverage already underway. Sun Sports will also be streaming the event live online for viewers outside the state of Florida, and ESPN3 is providing a live stream. NBA TV has television coverage of the parade as well.
