PARADE ROUTE
The parade begins at noon and the route will start at the foot of Market and Steuart streets near the Ferry Building. Here is a map of the parade route.



WEATHER
Will it rain on our parade? Early birds will probably get a little wet. But make sure to get the latest forecast here or download our ABC7 News Weather app and watch the system move through the area on Live Doppler 7 HD.


TRANSIT INFO
Allow yourself some extra time to get to San Francisco before the parade begins at Noon! BART is gearing up to carry hundreds of thousands of baseball fans to downtown San Francisco on Friday. They will run rush hour service all day using every available train possible. And because Friday is Halloween, trains will run until 2 a.m.
