Kings to hold parade Monday

6/14/2014

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Kings will celebrate their second Stanley Cup in three years with a parade down Figueroa Street followed by a rally at Staples Center on Monday.

The parade and rally will be similar to the one the Kings had after winning the Stanley Cup in 2012.

The parade will begin at noon PT at the corner of Figueroa and West 5th Street and end in front of Staples Center at L.A. Live. The Kings will ride on double-decker buses and other specially decorated vehicles down the parade route along with the Stanley Cup, Conn Smythe Trophy and Clarence S. Campbell Bowl.

Those planning to attend Monday's parade are encouraged to line the 1-mile Figueroa Street parade route between 5th Street to the north and Chick Hearn Court to the south. All the immediate areas adjacent to Staples Center and L.A. Live will be controlled by the Los Angeles Police Department and Department of Transportation with limited access.

The parade is expected to last 30 to 45 minutes.

The Kings also will stage a special rally inside Staples Center after the parade, beginning around 1:30 p.m. The 60-minute ticketed event will include specially produced video highlights from the season, introductions of the entire team, coaching staff and executives with speeches and reactions from many of the players.

Fans with tickets for the rally can show their tickets to enter special viewing areas for the parade along Chick Hearn Court on the south side of the street in Staples Center's Star Plaza or on the north side of the street in L.A. Live's Nokia Plaza. Only those with tickets for the rally can enter these areas.

Restaurants within L.A. Live will remain open during parade hours, though access will be limited to the district's northern entrance off Olympic Boulevard.
