The Los Angeles Kings have finally captured their first Stanley Cup. The big victory parade will happen Thursday.

Los Angeles Kings fans have been waiting a very long time to be able to call their team the Stanley Cup Champions. After a leave-no-doubts, dominating 6-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils in Game 6 on Monday, that long wait is finally over. Now the celebratory festivities can officially get under way.

Andrew Blankstein at the Los Angeles Times reports that the victory parade to welcome the Stanley Cup to Los Angeles will take place Thursday afternoon. The parade will begin at 12:00 p.m. PT and originate at 5th and Figueroa. The jubilant procession will travel south along Figueroa before coming to an end between the Staples Center and L.A. Live. It is recommended that you plan to arrive early to get a good viewing location.

Players, coaches and family members will reportedly be riding in double-decker buses, among other vehicles. More information about the parade will likely be available Wednesday.
