The city of Cleveland is ready explode, as they are having their first ever championship parade to celebrate after their first championship in over 50 years. The parade is scheduled to start at 11 AM EST in downtown Cleveland. The parade will start at East 6th Street with the majority of the route taking place on East 9th.
This is the first championship parade to ever be held in Cleveland, as the 1964 NFL Champion Browns did not have a parade. Mayor Frank Jackson told a local Cleveland news station before Game 7 that the city did not want to jinx the series by planning a parade. “We have seriously not talked about it. You know, this morning we had Mayor Voinovich’s funeral. Today we have this, so you know, in due time, we’ll talk about it, at the right time.” Classic Cleveland.
