Cards to be honored by fans in Sunday parade
The Cardinals will celebrate their 11th World Series championship on Sunday with a victory parade through downtown St. Louis, concluding with a special ceremony on the field at Busch Stadium.

The parade will begin at 4 p.m. CT with the Budweiser Clydesdales leading the procession in Ford trucks east along Market Street, from 18th Street at Union Station to 7th Street South, toward Stan Musial Drive. The festivities will be streamed live on cardinals.com and MLB.com as well.

The celebration will include the newly crowned World Series champion Cardinals, Fredbird, Team Fredbird and the Rally Squirrel, along with musical entertainment by the marching bands of Lindbergh, Pattonville, Seckman and Belleville High Schools. The on-field ceremony at Busch Stadium will also include a fireworks display.

Tickets to the victory celebration at the stadium -- available for $5 each, with all of the proceeds going toward the Cardinals Care charitable foundation -- will go on sale Saturday at 2 p.m. at cardinals.com/parade. Fans will be limited to two tickets per order.

Season-ticket holders can purchase up to four tickets, two hours in advance of the tickets going on sale to the general public.
