The Atlanta Braves won the 2021 World Series on Tuesday night, beating the Houston Astros in six games. The Braves Championship is their first since 1995 and stands out for its improbability. Atlanta had a loss record in August and was arguably its best player (Ronald AcuÃ±a Jr.) and pitcher (Mike Soroka). From now on, as usual, the Braves will organize a parade to celebrate their loot.
The parade takes place on Friday, with celebrations taking place both in downtown Atlanta and at Braves’ Truist Park.
The parade is scheduled to take place starting at noon, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Besides, Adam Murphy from CBS 46 reported that the Braves would kick off at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta before moving to the Cobb Performing Arts Center, which is closer to the Braves baseball stadium. From there, the Braves will then complete their lap of honor at Truist Park.

Here’s a look at the parade map, from CBS46:
The Braves’ title is the first major professional championship in Atlanta since Atlanta United won the MLS Cup in 2018. The NFL Atlanta Falcons and NBA Atlanta Hawks have never delivered a championship to the city.
“We’re having a parade. I think the people of Atlanta and the great people in Cobb County are going to be very happy with the parade we have,” Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms said Wednesday.
