The Washington Capitals championship parade will be held on Tuesday at 11 a.m. on Constitution Avenue after the Caps won the Stanley Cup Thursday night.

Next week's parade is free and open to the public. It will start at Constitution Avenue and 17th Streets, NW, and will continue along Constitution Avenue to 7th Street, NW. It will then turn right and move to an ALLCAPS rally at 7th Street, NW at the National Mall.

D.C. officials are encouraging fans to take the Metro or rideshare due to limited parking near the parade route.

More details about the ALLCAPS rally will be announced soon.

The Caps won the Stanley Cup on the same day, 40 years later, that the Washington Bullets won their first NBA championship on June 7, 1978.

This championship is the first by a D.C. professional sports team in any of the four major professional sports since Washington's NFL team won the Super Bowl in 1992.

Captain Alex Ovechkin was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the NHL playoff MVP with 15 goals.
