Yes, it really happened: The Washington Nationals won the World Series last night, marking the first time D.C.’s MLB baseball team has done so in 95 years. And on Saturday, the District will honor their championship victory with a parade just north of the National Mall. Starting at 2 p.m., the parade will go from Constitution Avenue NW at 15th Street NW, proceed east along the avenue, and end on Pennsylvania Avenue NW at 3rd Street NW with a team rally.
That’s according to D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office, which is encouraging Nats fans not to drive to the parade. To receive alerts about the event, people can text “NATS” to 888-777 or visit the District government’s sports landing page. Multiple city agencies are coordinating the parade. The Nats will return from Houston; they beat the Astros in four of seven games.
The parade is sure to attract thousands of people. Watch out for sharks—baby sharks, that is.
