Yes... there will be a parade!

NFL: Super Bowl LIV-San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

In case you hadn’t heard, the Kansas City Chiefs are once again the world champions of professional football after defeating the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV.

And in news that is not likely to surprise you, there will be a parade.

Kansas City, Missouri Mayor Quinton Lucas announced on Sunday evening that the parade — billed as the Chiefs Kingdom Champions Parade — will begin at 11:30 a.m. (Arrowhead Time, of course) on Wednesday, February 5.

The precise parade route is not yet known — although television stations are reporting that it will end near Union Station, where there will be a victory rally at 1:30 p.m. (still Arrowhead Time) shortly after the parade ends.

You may recall a similar event.

This time, however, we are pretty sure the color scheme will be different.

We expect that more details about the parade route will be released on Tuesday morning. The Kansas City Sports Commission and Foundation has set up a web site with the imaginative (but memorable) name ChiefsParade.com where additional details will be available — and we’ll keep you abreast of that information as we get it.

Snow showers are predicted for Kansas City on Tuesday. Wednesday is presently expected to be cloudy with a high of 31 degrees.
