WASHINGTON — It’s not every day that a city gets to celebrate a championship.
With the Capitals winning the first Stanley Cup in franchise history, D.C. will be celebrating in a big way with a parade through downtown, then a rally on the National Mall on Tuesday, June 12.
Unlike previous events on the National Mall, organizers have not put together an extensive list of banned items, however there will be no alcohol, glass or drones allowed.
The federal government will be open during the parade but the White House is encouraging agencies to grant employees two hours off during the festivities. More details can be found below.
As with any big parade, there will be a slew of street closures and parking restrictions. Here’s what you need to know before the parade kicks off.
