San Francisco to mark World Series win with parade
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Police say up to 2 million Giants fans could turn out Friday to cheer the World Series champions in a downtown San Francisco parade.
The noontime event will feature double-decker buses for the players and floats of the Golden Gate Bridge.
The 3-2 victory Wednesday against the Kansas City Royals was the Giants' third World Series championship in five years.
The streets are expected to be awash in orange and black.
Police Chief Greg Suhr says there will be plenty of officers on the streets with police dogs helping with security.
In the hours after the victory, fans initially gathered in the streets peacefully, but the celebration quickly turned raucous and violent. Police say 40 people were arrested.
