ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves will give a nod to past and present with a two-part parade Friday celebrating their first World Series title in 26 years.
The Braves beat the Houston Astros 7-0 on Tuesday night to wrap up the championship.
The procession will start at Woodruff Park in the heart of downtown Atlanta, not far from their former homes at Turner Field and the old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.
The team will be feted for about 2 miles along the city’s most famous thoroughfare, Peachtree Street, before being escorted to its current home in suburban Cobb County to resume the parade for another mile.
The celebration will conclude with a free concert featuring Atlanta rappers Ludacris and Big Boi at Truist Park, which opened in 2017 and is about 12 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta.
