Capturing their second World Series title in three years, the San Francisco Giants are now ready for their championship parade beginning Wednesday.
The parade starts at 11 a.m. local time, and the route will run from Market Street by the San Francisco Bay and go 1 1/2 miles to City Hall. There will then be a separate celebration at Civic Center Plaza.
Fans can watch a live online stream of the parade here.
City officials said they are increasing public transportation efforts on light-rail, subway, and ferry services, according to KCRA.com.
The event will be alcohol-free, and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee stressed a family-friendly environment in the wake of three dozen arrests Sunday, hours after the Giants completed their sweep of the Detroit Tigers.
"I'm not going to let the spirit of this city be destroyed by 36 people," Lee said to the Associated Press. "We're going to move forward with a great parade, a wonderful celebration."
Several celebrations resulted in bonfires across the city, including the destruction of a $700,000 public transit bus, according to reports.
Fans began gathering along the parade route and at City Hall early Wednesday in their orange and black, and the city expects a huge crowd like their 2010 parade, when hundreds of thousanss showed up to support their team.
