The Red Sox have done the damn thing, and now it’s all about celebrating. Eventually we’re going to turn to the offseason and next year, but we’re enjoying this for a little bit. The best part of the celebration as a fan is the parade through Boston. I’ve actually never been to a Red Sox World Series parade — and I have to work during this one so it’ll make it 0/4 on that front — but I did go to the Celtics one and it was an absolute blast. If you’re wondering whether or not you can go, that’ll depend on how busy you are on Halloween. Nothing has been officially announced as I write this, but it sure looks like they are planning to hold the celebration on Wednesday. According to WBZ via Jimmy Golen, it’ll start at 11 am ET.

So, yeah, if you can make it, I highly recommend going. This is especially true if you’ve never been, though I will say if you struggle in crowds maybe just watch on TV. Either way, it’s always a blast to see these guys with their hangovers gone or almost gone and basking in the adoration of the fans. I’ll have to watch on delay, but I’m sure NESN will have a live stream on Wednesday. As for the route, we’ll have to wait and see but they generally start at Fenway and work their way down Boylston St. I’m sure the particulars will be released soon enough. But, to recap, the duck boats are getting fired up on Halloween (Wednesday) at 11 am. Be there or be square. (Or watch a recording like me.)
