If you're clamoring to celebrate the Red Sox's World Series victory with thousands of your fellow Bostonians, you're in luck. The city announced a victory duck boat parade will start at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31.

The parade will start on Lansdowne Street, take a right on Ipswich Street, a left onto Boylston Street to Tremont Street (going the wrong way) and then wrap up by heading to Cambridge Street and finally New Sudbury Street.

At a press conference announcing the parade, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said unlike in past years, there will be no rally at City Hall Plaza.

"We are a city of champions," he said. "Let's celebrate like champions."

One man, a 22-year-old from Connecticut, was arrested early Monday for shattering a light fixture in downtown Boston, following the World Series win.

WBUR's David Epstein says Wednesday's weather will be mostly sunny, with highs approaching 60.

For more information and specific restrictions regarding parking and street closures, the city has set up a dedicated site: www.boston.gov/redsoxparade
