The Minnesota Lynx will celebrate their third championship in five years tomorrow with a parade in downtown Minneapolis followed by celebrations at Target Center. The parade will start at 11:30 at 12th and Hennepin, and make it's way to Target Center where players and coaches will speak to the crowd among other activities. Here's some text from the press release:

INFO: Fresh off of winning the 2015 WNBA Championship, the Minnesota Lynx will host a parade and championship celebration tomorrow, Friday, October 16 beginning at 11:30 a.m. The parade will begin at the corner of 12th Street and Hennepin Avenue before turning down 7th Street toward Target Center.

Following the procession, the championship celebration at Target Center will kick off at 12:15 p.m. with a video commemorating the Lynx season. Lynx players and coaches will address the crowd, while radio play-by-play announcer John Focke will emcee the event.

Both events are free and open to the public. Doors to Target Center will open at 11:30 a.m. for the championship celebration. Fox Sports North will carry both the parade and championship celebration live, starting at 11:30 a.m.

Hopefully a good crowd turns out to celebrate the victory and this fantastic basketball team.
