Boston Celtics 2024 NBA championship parade: Date, time and route revealed

Upon securing their record-setting 18th NBA championship, the Boston Celtics will celebrate with their fans during Friday's highly anticipated duck boat championship parade.

Boston defeated the Dallas Mavericks 106-88 during Monday's Game 5 NBA Finals showdown, winning its title series 4-1 in front of its home crowd. Star wing Jaylen Brown earned finals MVP honors, averaging 20.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game on 44.0% shooting over five outings.

On Tuesday, the Celtics traveled to Miami for a team celebration. A day later, they returned home in preparation for parading their latest Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy around the streets of Boston.

Per Boston.gov, Friday's title parade will commence at 11 a.m. ET on Causeway Street outside of TD Garden. It will continue along Staniford Street before going from Cambridge Street to Tremont Street to Boylston Street.

Afterward, the celebration will conclude near the Hynes Convention Center. In total, the parade is expected to run for around 90 minutes.

With this year's title, Boston broke its tie with its longtime rival, the LA Lakers (17 championships), for the most in league history. Thus, Banner 18 carries extra meaning for Celtics fans.

According to Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, "well over one million" fans are expected to attend the event. Thus, Boston and Massachusetts State Police are reportedly prepping for the projected massive turnout.
