Mayor Thomas Menino has announced that the Stanley Cup parade for the Bruins will be on Saturday, starting at 11 a.m. It will be the seventh championship parade since 2002 in the city of Boston.
The parade was initially rumored to perhaps take place on Friday, but Menino said Saturday was a better fit for several players who had prior commitments on Friday.
“This is the players' rally, not my rally,” Menino said. “We wanted to do what the players wanted. They’re the ones that brought the championship to Boston."
