The parade to celebrate the Kings' Stanley Cup championship begins Thursday at noon at the corner of Figueroa and West 5th Street. There are expected to be several thousand people in attendance for the parade, and the rally at Staples Center after the parade is already sold out.
With that in mind, here are a few facts and tips to help you enjoy yourself should you decide to come downtown for the parade.
-- Players and their families, coaches, staff, broadcasters, alumni, the Kings Ice Crew and mascot Bailey will ride on double-decker buses. Among the items to be carried by those in the parade will be the Stanley Cup, the Conn Smythe Trophy and the Clarence Campbell Cup.
-- If you want to watch the parade, you can find a spot on the one-mile parade route on Figueroa Street between 5th Street and Chick Hearn Court.
