When and where will the Houston Astros World Series victory parade be?

What's a Houston Astros World Series championship without a victory parade? Here's everything you need to know about the exciting event happening on Monday and Alex Bregman's own after-party!

During a press conference on Sunday, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner announces the Astros victory parade will be on Monday starting at 12 p.m. The parade will be in downtown Houston and will start at the intersection of Smith St. and Preston St. and end on Smith St. and Tuam St.

Those planning to attend are also encouraged to take a ride-share service or use the METRO. Route Square Memorial Park, Allen's Landing, Eleanor Tinsley Park parking lots, and the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart will be used as ride-share drop-offs and pickups.

METRO announced the services will be free throughout the parade day. An estimated one million people will be traveling downtown to the celebration which will force several streets to be closed and cause detours of about two dozen bus routes. Customers can find a complete list of detoured routes at RideMETRO.org/astros.

Astros owner Jim Crane says, "We really appreciate the city support. We couldn't do it without the city. The city really got behind the team."

Hundreds of city and surrounding area officers of different agencies will be out during the parade to ensure public safety.

HOUSTON, TX - NOVEMBER 05: The Houston Astros celebrate after defeating the Phillies, 4-1, in Game 6 of the 2022 World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park on Saturday, November 5, 2022 in Houston, Texas

It was also announced that Texas Southern and University of Houston marching bands will be in attendance.

Luckily, the party doesn't stop after the parade! Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman announced that his brand, Breggy Bomb, will be hosting an After Party at Little Woodrow's Midtown located at the end of the parade route at 2306 Brazos St. The event starts at 1 p.m.

Mayor Turner said this about the Astros bringing the city together with this win, "It reminded me of what Nelson Mandela said years ago when he took over as head of South Africa. He says ‘sports are the one thing that can unite us as a country and pull us and push us all forward together' and so that's exactly what the Astros did in 2022."

IS YOUR SCHOOL CLOSED?: List of Houston-area schools closing to celebrate World Series championship

Many school districts in the Houston area are closing on Monday so students, faculty, and staff can go out and celebrate at the parade. Attendees are encouraged to bring water and something to snack on during the parade as it is expected to be sunny outside.

METRO says they will continue to operate local bus, Park & Ride, and METRORail Red Line service for as long as possible and shred the following service adjustments:

  • Several local bus routes to and from downtown will be detoured. Visit METRO's website for details on specific routes and to sign up for METRO Service Alerts.
  • Regularly scheduled Park & Ride service will be provided for the morning commute; however, afternoon service will be delayed by at least one hour beginning at 4 p.m.
  • METRORail's Green and Purple lines will provide rides into downtown, but service will not be provided between EaDo/Stadium and Theater District stations.

Regular service around downtown will resume when the parade route opens to regular traffic and crowds reduce.
