Party Time: All the Kings’ Fans and All the Kings’ Men


After trouncing the New Jersey Devils 6-1 in the Stanley Cup Finals, the Los Angeles Kings are preparing to celebrate in royal fashion. On Thursday the Kings and AEG will host a championship parade down Figueroa St. and a championship rally inside Staples Center. At noon, players and their families, coaches, staff, broadcasters, alumni, the Ice Crew, Bailey, and VIPs will ride on double-decker buses to showcase the Stanley Cup, Conn Smythe Trophy, and Clarence Campbell Cup. Following the parade at 2:30 p.m., a 60-minute, ticketed rally will highlight moments from the regular season and will include introductions of the team, staff, and executives—in addition to special presentations and surprises.
