D.C. will host a parade at 2 p.m. Saturday to celebrate the Washington Nationals’ World Series victory.

The 2019 Nationals Championship Parade will begin in Northwest on Constitution Avenue at 15th Street, proceed east along Constitution Avenue, and end on Pennsylvania Avenue at 3rd Street with a team rally.

Fans attending the parade are encouraged to:

• Text “NATS” to 888-777 to receive text alerts on safety, transit and weather updates from the District about the parade.
• Leave your car at home — take Metro or the many other public transit options as parking will be extremely limited near the route.
• Use #FightFinished on social media.
• Visit sportscapital.dc.gov for the latest information.

The Nationals defeated the Houston Astros 6-2 in Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday. It was the city’s second sports title in the past weeks, following the Washington Mystics’ win in the WNBA Finals last month.
