On Wednesday Major League Baseball announced the 12th annual pregame Red Carpet Parade through the streets of Downtown San Diego. It should be comparable to last year’s parade in Cincinnati (http://www.cincinnati.com/picture-gallery/sports/2015-all-star-game/2015/07/14/scenes-from-the-all-star-parade/30146985/).
The parade will begin at Noon on Tuesday, July 12, beginning at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel. At the front of the parade will be convertibles carrying all the members of the National League and American League All-Star teams. The parade will advance through the streets of San Diego all the way to Petco Park. The frontrunners of the parade will be the Grand Marshals, Dave Winfield and Trevor Hoffman.
According to San Diego newspapers, parking will be very difficult. The MLB and Padres encourage fans to use public transportation. There will be free park-and-ride lots along the Trolley and Coaster lines, this includes 5,000 spaces at Qualcomm Stadium.
If you’re unable to make the parade but still want to watch, the MLB Network is televising the event and will show it at 1 p.m. and it will be simulcast on MLB.com.
