If You’re Attending the Red Sox World Series Victory Parade, BPD Encourages You to Have Fun, Enjoy the Day and Celebrate Responsibly: Three days after the Boston Red Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers to take home their 4th World Series Championship in 15 years, Mayor Martin Walsh and the citizens of Boston gather to celebrate the Red Sox World Series Title with a Rolling Rally scheduled for Wednesday, October 31, 2018, that departs Fenway Park at 11:00am and concludes later in the day at Staniford Street.

Those attending the rally are asked to dress accordingly and layer up for the forecasted weather which is expected to be clear, cool with temps in the 50’s. Fans are reminded that the parade is designed to be a family-friendly event meaning there will be zero tolerance for public drinking or disorderly, disruptive behavior resulting from an over consumption of alcohol. Fans are reminded that climbing or standing on mailboxes, bus vestibules or rooftops is prohibited. In light of the large number of street closures and limited parking along the parade route, the use of public transportation is strongly encouraged.    

Additionally, the Boston Police Department would like to remind fans that there will be multiple security measures in place including a list of prohibited items to ensure the safety of all attending the Red Sox Rolling Rally. As such, BPD is asking and encouraging parade-goers to leave certain items at home. That list of prohibited items includes the following:

  •        Alcoholic beverages

  •        Large bags, coolers or glass containers

  •      Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), commonly referred to as ‘drones’, along the parade route

  •        Firearms, knives, weapons or sharp objects

  •        Replica or toy firearms

  •        Fireworks

Lastly, we remind all attending the parade to be aware of their surroundings and to report any suspicious activity. The BPD will have uniformed officers all along the parade route so if you see something suspicious, please say something to our officers.
