For the second time in three years, the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers to be named NBA champions. And you know what that means—Oakland gets to throw an enormous party parade. 

Here's what you need to know: 

WHEN: Thursday, June 15. The parade begins at 10am on Broadway and 11th Streets, with a rally at 12:15pm at the south end of Lake Merritt. Fans can begin queuing up for the rally starting as early as 5am at Lakeshore and 12th Street.

WHERE: The route will be the same as 2015: The parade will begin on Broadway and 11th Streets, turning right on Grand Avenue, right on Harrison to 19th St, and right on Lakeside Drive, ending on Oak and proceeding to the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center.

IN CASE YOU'RE LATE: There will also be an overflow viewing area located at Lake Merritt Boulevard and E 12th Street, including a live feed of the parade and rally.

HOW TO GET THERE: BART and AC Transit are obviously the best way to go, but make sure you load up your Clipper Card early so you're not stuck waiting in line at the station.

The City of Oakland estimates that between one and two million people will call in sick to work for this momentous occasion. So remember to arrive early and be nice. After all, we're all in Dub Nation together. 

See you there!
