The Red Sox won their fourth World Series in 14 years on Sunday night, dispatching the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5 to wrap things at four games to one.

That means that the City of Boston is gearing up for yet another Duck Boat-powered parade in honor of the Sox. It will take place on October 31—that’s right, Halloween—starting at 11 a.m.

The parade will begin on Lansdowne Street outside of Fenway Park; turn right onto Ipswich Street; then left onto Boylston Street until Tremont Street; and then end along Cambridge Street and New Sudbury Street.

The best spots to watch, then, would be close to these streets—Boylston in particular—and along the south sides of the Public Garden and Boston Common.

Numerous parking restrictions are in effect for the parade, beginning early on Tuesday morning and lasting well into Wednesday. Those restrictions can be found here. Officials are encouraging people to take public transportation to the big shindig. There are numerous T stops near the route.

This interactive map from the city shows not only the route but those street closures in relation to it.

Incidentally, the parade will be the 11th such celebratory one honoring a championship sports team here since 2002, what with all the Super Bowls and Stanley Cups too. The last for the Red Sox was in November 2013. It’s pictured at top.
