It’s time for a San Francisco Giants parade. To celebrate winning the 2010 World Series, the San Francisco Giants parade route has been set up to help commemorate the arrival of the 1958 Giants to the city. That was the year that the New York Giants moved into town, and it has been that long since the Giants have had a parade. The long drought of not having a World Series title in San Francisco came to an end on Monday night when the Giants beat the Rangers 3-1. Now it’s time to celebrate!
According to KTVU out of San Francisco, the San Francisco Giants parade will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 3. The parade will extend from the Financial District to Civic Center Plaza, all beginning at 11 a.m. KTVU even laid out a nice parade route on Google maps for everyone to take a look at. The exact starting point of the parade will be at the intersection of Montgomery and Washington streets and will continue through Market Street for six blocks. The whole parade will come to an end at the San Francisco City Hall front steps. It is there that Mayor Gavin Newsom will give them the key to the city.
The Giants are already back in town after flying out of Texas late on Monday night. Now they will get a day of rest before it is time to really party with the rest of the fans in San Francisco. The Giants are the 2010 World Series champions after beating the Texas Rangers in five games, with Edgar Renteria winning the NLCS MVP and pitcher Tim Lincecum winning both of his starts along the way.
