“These players are role models and we want to celebrate them in Boston style,” Walsh told reporters.
The parade will begin on Boylston Street near Fenway Park and continue all the way down to Boston Common, where the duck boats will take a left onto Tremont Street.
“It’ll continue up Tremont to Cambridge and end at Staniford Street.” Walsh said.
He warned fans to take the MBTA into the city because they’ll have several traffic and parking restrictions around the route.
“If you come in early, I suggest you come in around 8 o’clock,” Walsh said. “Don’t do anything on the streets of Boston on Wednesday morning that you wouldn’t do in front of your own house. Be respectful of the city.”READ MORE: Celebrating And Commemorating Juneteenth: Words From Local Lawmakers

Great weather is forecast Wednesday, with temperatures nearing 60 degrees in the early afternoon.
