Milwaukee will host a parade for the Bucks on Thursday
No, it wasn't all a dream.
Last night the Milwaukee Bucks really won an NBA championship for the first time in 50 years -- and in six games and at home, at that. And with 65,000 thousand fans cheering from the Deer District, and tens of thousands more packed into surrounding bars and watch parties, it was an unforgettable scene.

Now comes the parade. In a, uh, rather informal interview, Bucks president Peter Feigin told WTMJ last night that a parade will take place Thursday.
Milwaukee: Your parade is THIS THURSDAY! We just heard it from Peter Feigin himself. https://t.co/SmiTKpYEBF pic.twitter.com/mWGae84fy0— TMJ4 News (@tmj4) July 21, 2021
And that's more than just a wishful promise from a man who had clearly been celebrating. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel confirmed that the city is indeed planning a Thursday parade. We'll have more information about it when it comes.
UPDATE: And now we know the details.
The parade will start at 11 a.m. The route is below.
