The City of Oakland is hosting its parade for the 2018 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, June 12, starting at 11 a.m.
The parade will begin on Broadway at 11th Street, turning right onto 20th Street, turning right on Harrison to 19th Street, and right on Lakeside Drive, ending on Oak and 13th street, according to the city.
Fans can begin to line up for the Parade on Tuesday as early as 6:30 a.m. Over 1 million spectators are expected.
BART and AC Transit are gearing up to accommodate large crowds. BART will run rush-hour service all day using every available train possible at maximum length to help people get to where they need to be.
AC Transit buses will be rerouted around downtown Oakland for most of the day due to street closures in the parade area. AC Transit ambassadors will be deployed throughout downtown Oakland and Lake Merritt to help guide residents and visitors to appropriate bus stop locations.
Parking in the areas surrounding the parade will be significantly limited and public transit is highly encouraged.

Aside from sunscreen, hats and water, spectators can bring signs and banners but they must not obstruct sightlines at the parade. Dimensions of signs and banners cannot exceed 18″ by 18″ and they should not have obscene or inflammatory language, according to the city.

Also, no glass containers or cans, no lawn furniture or folding chairs, and no pole, stick broom or other item that can be used as a weapon, and no large umbrellas or pop-up tents.
