DOWN THE CANYON OF HEROES
U.S. Women to be feted with New York parade
New York’s Canyon of Heroes has feted kings, popes and presidents, returning military, the Moon astronauts and countless New York sports teams. On Friday, July 10, it will greet the World Cup Champion U.S. Women’s National Team.
New York City is hosting a ticker tape parade down the fabled route along lower Broadway from the Battery to City Hall starting at 11 am ET.
A special program will be held at City Hall following the parade, and fans can visit nyc.gov/parade for a chance to attend.
The parade will honor the USA following its historic run at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup that culminated with a 5-2 victory against Japan on July 5 to give the country its third title, and become the only nation to achieve that feat.
