World Series parade to begin Friday in Atlanta

(Daniel Varnado/ For the Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

The Braves are planning a two-part parade on Friday at noon that will start in the city of Atlanta and culminate in Cobb County with a concert inside Truist Park and feature Atlanta natives Ludacris and Big Boi.

The parade route will begin at the corner of Marietta Street NW and Peachtree Street and travel North up Peachtree to 10th Street. The second phase of the parade will then continue through Cobb County on Cobb Parkway, beginning at the corner of Riverwood Parkway and culminated at Circle 75 Parkway.

Fans are invited to line the parade route and join the post-parade celebration and concert with Grammy Award-winning artists Ludacris and Big Boi. Free tickets are required and must be reserved in advance.

Tickets and pre-paid parking passes for the celebration at Truist Park will be available Thursday at Premium and A-List Members and Braves Insiders will receive early access to reserve their tickets, beginning at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., respectively. Tickets will be available to the public beginning at 1 p.m. The Braves encourage fans to arrive early and pre-purchase parking.

The Battery Atlanta will have limited capacity during the celebration. Access for non-ticket holders will be granted on a first come, first served basis.

Coverage of the parade and team celebration will be televised live on Bally Sports South and Bally Sports Southeast.

Many of the state’s largest school districts will close Friday due to festivities. The Atlanta, Cobb County, Clayton County, DeKalb County, Douglas County, Fulton County and Marietta districts have announced that they will not hold classes Friday.

The celebration follows the Braves’ World Series victory Tuesday after they defeated the Astros, 7-0, in Game 6 to win the best-of-seven series 4-2. It is the Braves’ first championship, and second since moving to Atlanta, after they last won it all in 1995.
