The route and schedule for the Boston Celtics championship parade on Friday was unveiled Tuesday morning, hours after the team secured its 18th NBA title, knocking off the Dallas Mavericks in five games in the NBA finals.

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu confirmed the parade will begin around 11 a.m. Friday in front of TD Garden on Causeway Street. The parade will then travel by City Hall Plaza and Boston Common Tremont Street, eventually ending on Boylston Street near the Hynes Convention Center.

As is tradition, duck boats will serve as the vehicles for the Celtics parade. Friday’s parade is the first in the city since the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2019.

Wu’s office is set to host a public safety press conference outlining safety measures for the parade at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Normally, a parade would occur just a couple days after a championship win, but the city pushed the Celtics to wait until Friday to celebrate due to a record heat wave expected to hit Boston Tuesday through Thursday, MassLive reported.

With a few days to celebrate, the Celtics are scheduled to fly to Miami on Tuesday to keep the party going until celebrating with Boston fans on Friday. Jayson Tatum is one who will be happy to cherish the experience with Boston fans after winning his first title on the Garden parquet.

“I mean, this is going to be a night that I will remember for the rest of my life, from the game, the celebration, these moments,” Tatum said. “You know, over the last couple years, we had some tough losses at home in the playoffs. We’ve lost the NBA Championship at home in front of our fans. We had a chance to beat Miami in Game 6 a few years ago and lost that one. So to have a big win, the biggest win that you could have in front of your home crowd, I felt like that was really important to go out there and do everything in my power to make sure we won this game tonight.”
