How to watch the parade, rally Tuesday for Parker and WNBA champion Chicago Sky
Naperville native Candace Parker and the rest of Chicago Sky’s WNBA Championship team will be celebrated in Chicago with a parade and rally starting Tuesday morning, the city said.
The parade will begin at 11 a.m. when the Sky exits Wintrust Arena and heads north on Michigan Avenue from Roosevelt Road to Randolph Street. The entourage will go east on Randolph to the Pritzker Lodge.
There the rally will start at noon.
Both are free and open to the public. The two will also be streamed live on social media, across all @chicagomayor accounts, according to the city.
Millennium Park will open at 8 a.m. and Pritzker Pavilion seating will open at 10 a.m. there is no registration.
But everyone will have to go through a security check at the entrance, and no bags will be allowed.
Masks are encouraged and âstay home if you are unwell or have recently tested positive for COVID-19â.
This is the city’s first championship celebration since the Cubs won the World Series in 2016 and the first basketball championship celebration since the Bulls celebrated their sixth NBA title in 1998.
Parker joined Sky this season to help the franchise win their first championship, won when Sky beat the Phoenix Mercury 80-74 on Sunday in Game 4 of the WNBA Finals. The Sky won the title as the sixth seed after finishing .500 in the regular season.
