PITTSBURGH, PA (June 13, 2016) - The City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County today announced that a victory parade for the 2016 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins will take place in downtown on Wednesday, June 15, 2016 at 11:30 a.m.
The parade route will follow a similar route as previous championship parades that took place in 2009. The route will begin on Grant Street at Liberty Avenue, travel along Grant Street to the Boulevard of the Allies, turn right onto the Boulevard of the Allies and will end at the intersection of the Boulevard of the Allies and Stanwix Street. A stage will be set up at Stanwix Street for celebratory remarks from Pittsburgh Penguins personnel.
Road closures and parade route barricade installation will begin at 12:00 a.m. Wednesday morning.
There will be two separate media platforms set up along the parade route: one (1) at “the turn” at Grant Street and the Boulevard of the Allies and one (1) near the Stanwix Street stage.
Press access to the parade route will be limited to still photographers and videographers inside the parade route: One (1) photographer per print media outlet, and one (1) videographer per TV media outlet.
Parade press credentials are required. Media outlets should RSVP to Jason Seidling (firstname.lastname@example.org) or David Uhrmacher (email@example.com) by Tuesday at 4:00 p.m.
In the interest of safety, the parade route will be restricted to designated parade participants only. Members of the media (with the exception of the single designated photographers and videographers) and members of the public will not be permitted inside the parade route.
Additional parade event details will be released later. We thank you for your patience as the parade operations plan is developed.
