OAKLAND (CBS SF/LIVE 105) – The Golden State Warriors will be throwing their second victory parade in three years after winning their second NBA in three years, led by NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant.
The parade and rally will be held in downtown Oakland starting at 10AM on Thursday June 15.
Oakland city officials said they’re expecting more than a million spectators for the victory celebration in downtown Oakland, so people should expect large crowds, traffic, and delays starting very early Thursday morning and lasting throughout the day.
They said parking will be limited and will fill up early, so people should plan to take public transportation to the parade.
City officials said that in addition to the crowds, no-parking zones and street closures will make driving in downtown Oakland very difficult starting early Thursday morning.
They said once the downtown area fills up, vehicles will not be allowed entry or will be re-routed out of the area.
No-parking signs are being posted in the downtown Oakland area, with restrictions beginning at 8 p.m. Tuesday and continuing through 6 p.m. Thursday.
Fans can begin to line up for the Rally as early as 5 a.m. at Lakeshore and 12th Street.
