LIVE: Washington Capitals Stanley Cup victory parade


The day that many D.C. sports fans thought would never happen has finally arrived!

The city has seemingly been in a state of euphoria since the Washington Capitals defeated the Vegas Golden Knights to capture their first Stanley Cup Thursday.

The long-awaited parade started Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Constitution Avenue and 17th Street, NW and will progress from Constitution Avenue to 7th Street to the National Mall.

The parade has drawn massive crowds and, if the team's rowdy weekend in D.C. is any indication, will be a truly wild atmosphere. The White House encouraged federal agencies to grant its employees administrative leave during the parade and there was even an F-16 flyover at 11:15 a.m.

The rally is being held at the parade end point, at 7th Street and the National Mall.
