true-sf-giants-new-era-cap.jpgAfter a glorious World Series in which the San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers with a 4-3 win in the tenth inning of the fourth game, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee has announced that the city will celebrate our win with a ticker-tape parade and civic celebration on Halloween.

“The rain in Detroit couldn’t dampen the drive, talent and determination of the San Francisco Giants team tonight. Once again, the Giants brought our City together as we all cheered on our hometown heroes to another remarkable World Series victory” Lee said in a statement.

San Francisco will the mark the “return of our hometown team…with a ticker tape parade down Market Street to welcome them home” Lee said.

The parade will begin at the foot of Market Street at 11 a.m. and continue down Market Street to Civic Center Plaza.

A spokesperson from local television station KRON4 confirmed to the Appeal that the station will broadcast the parade, live, starting at 11 Wednesday. For those of us who will be without a TV at that time, you can follow the broadcast on KRON’s Ustream channel and via liveblog on their Facebook page.
