City officials, fans, players, and the Cup have two days to get their affairs in order before the team’s victory parade set for Thursday at noon.
The Parade is set to start at 5th and Figueroa, and head the one mile south to LA Live. The parade is expected to last 30-45 minutes. The Stanley Cup, the Conne Smythe Trophy and Campbell Cup will all be in attendance.
In cooperation with city officials the Kings should hire a special consultant to the parade committee. A veteran of three championship parades, a man whose performances almost single-hendedly made YouTube what it is today, Mark Madesen will be available to instruct city and team officials, and especially players, how to make the most out of a victory parade.
After the parade, there is a special “championship rally” in Staples Center. They will be showing highlights from the Kings season, along with introductions of all the players and coaches. Tickets to the event are free, but are on a first come first serve basis, with season ticket holders getting the first opportunity to get them online. The remaining tickets will be made available to the public at 6pm on Tuesday on the Kings website.
