For the second time in two months, the city of Philadelphia has a championship parade to prepare for.

The Villanova Wildcats earned their second parade in three years by defeating the Michigan Wolverines, 79-62, to win the 2018 NCAA men's basketball tournament Monday. The City of Brotherly Love has turned into the city of champions, as the Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII in February.

The Wildcats' parade will be held Thursday, April 5, at 11 a.m. ET, per Villanova media relations:

WPVI ABC 6, which will air and stream the parade online, further detailed the parade route:

Rob Tornoe of the Philadelphia Inquirer provided a detailed look at the parade route. Full information on the parade can be found on the official website of the city of Philadelphia.

Back in 2016, Nova Nation showed up in full force to celebrate the program's first championship in more than three decades:

There's good news and bad news for Wildcats fans. While temperatures are forecast to drop from the 60s on Wednesday into the 40s on Thursday, according to the Weather Channel, there is a zero percent chance of rain Thursday, the only day through Saturday precipitation isn't expected.

Enjoy it, Philly. While parades may feel commonplace at this point, they don't always happen this frequently...unless you live in Boston.
