For the first time in 21 years, the Stanley Cup is coming back to Colorado. The Avalanche will be celebrating their championship with all of their fans on Thursday with a parade and rally in Downtown Denver. Here's what you need to know if you plan to head to the events.
The pre-parade rally starts at Civic Center Park at 9:00 a.m. There will be live music, highlight reels of the season, a live video feed of the parade.
The parade itself will start at 10:00 a.m. at Union Station. Fans are welcome to line 17th Street from Union Station to Broadway, then south to Civic Center Park.
There will be two designated parade seating areas for individuals with mobility impairments. The first lot will be on the northwest corner of 16th and Wynkoop, and the second at the northeast corner of 17th and Curtis. Those spots are available first-come, first-served basis.
For the rally, there will be designated seating for mobility impaired fans in front of the City and County Building on the south end of Bannock Street, accessible from 14th Avenue. The nearest available parking is at the Cultural Center Complex Garage at 12th and Broadway. Both the parking and seating area for the rally are first-come, first-serve, too.
