The Boston Red Sox are World Series champions once again, and the team will get a chance to celebrate with the fans before too long.

The team announced Monday morning that the parade will be held on Wednesday at 11 a.m. ET, per Kevin Slane of Boston.com. As for television coverage, MLB Network will broadcast the parade per usual, and local news stations in Boston are also expected to have coverage of the event.

Per the city's press conference Monday, the parade route will begin on Boylston Street near Fenway Park until Boston Common, before taking a left on Tremont Street. From there, it will head to Cambridge Street and end on Staniford Street.

And yes, there will once again be the duck boats.

Although the last few years saw teams winning their first World Series titles in franchise history or at least first in many years, the Red Sox are well-prepared for a parade after winning their fourth championship in 15 years.

The city has also seen more success outside of just baseball:

After Red Sox championships in 2004, 2007 and 2013, the city used its amphibious duck boat tours to display the players on both the roads and in the water.

The 2013 parade went from Fenway Park into the Charles River, covering a total of 3.8 miles:

Mayor Marty Walsh's congratulatory tweet Sunday night hinted at more duck boats, which was confirmed Monday:

The 2018 team was dominant throughout the year with a major league-best 108 wins before going 11-3 in the postseason on its way to a title. While title fatigue might set in with the fans, there will likely still be a packed city during the parade to celebrate this outstanding squad.
