The city is talking and excited about this upcoming parade. Vendors selling Heat gear is selling out, Miami Heat fans are buying up all the Championship merchandise. The victory parade starts at 11 a.m. on Monday, June 24, 2013, followed by a ticketed championship rally inside American Airlines Arena for season ticket holders. According to WSVN News the parade will run the same route as last year, the parade will start at Southwest 8th Street and 2nd Avenue, then head east on 8th Street, then north on Brickell Avenue across the bridge, and finally north on Biscayne Boulevard into the American Airlines Arena.
“The Miami Police Department already had its plans and today they are finalizing everything,” Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado said. Miami Police said no backpacks will be allowed during this year celebration for safety measure. According to officials an estimated 500,000 people may attend and fire rescue officials are concerned about parade-goers getting dehydrated.
