RED ALERT: Here are the all the details you need for Chiefs Super Bowl victory parade

Jeremey Theron Kirby

The Chiefs won the Super Bowl last night, but the celebrations are far from over.

The Kansas City Sports Commission and Foundation announced last night that the Chiefs victory parade will be held on Wednesday, February 5th at 11:30 am. The victory rally will start at 1:30 pm at Union Station.

Right now, the weather calls for overcast skies and early-thirties temps with a possible chance of snow, so bundle up.

To get a feel for what the Chiefs parade will be like, we can look back to the 2015 Royals World Series victory parade—but instead of a sea of blue, it’ll be red. Kansas Citians called November 3, 2015 a “Blue Snow Day” and the rally was so crowded that some fans had to park on the Kansas side of the city and walk to Union Station.

The parade kicks off at 6th Street and Grand Blvd., heading south on Grand Blvd., west on Pershing Road, north on Main, culminating at Union Station.
