There will be two parade areas designated for people with reduced mobility. The first lot will be at the northwest corner of 16th and Wynkoop, and the second will be at the northeast corner of 17th and Curtis. These places are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
For the rally, there will be designated seating for fans with reduced mobility in front of the City and County Building at the south end of Bannock Street, accessible from 14th Avenue. The closest available parking is at the Cultural Center Complex Garage at 12th and Broadway. Parking and seating for the rally is also on a first come, first served basis.
DOTI Crews will close Bannock of Colfax on the 14th Wednesday at 6:00 a.m. They will close 14th between Delaware and Broadway, Bannock between Colfax and 13th, and Cherokee between Colfax and 13th at 6:00 a.m. Thursday morning.
Participants are advised to use RTD to get to the city center.
It is also highly recommended to bring plenty of water. Highs are expected to hit 90 lows on Thursday and water will not be provided on site. Hats and sunscreen are also highly recommended.
The last time one of our major league sports teams won a championship was in 2016 for the Broncos. Although it is not yet officially mapped out, a place for parade and celebration could look alike.
