Cavs championship parade set for Wednesday

Cleveland beat Golden State on Sunday night to capture NBA title.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The championship parade and celebration for the newly crowned NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers will be held on Wednesday.

The Cavaliers are scheduled to arrive back in Cleveland around 11:30 a.m. on Monday, with a huge crowd of fans expected to greet them as they emerge off the plane with the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

More details about the parade and celebration were expected on Monday, according to city officials.

It’s unclear if Quicken Loans Arena will be the site for any of Wednesday’s events because of preparations that are ongoing in advance of next month’s Republican National Convention.

Cleveland won the city’s first major sports championship in 52 years on Sunday night, beating Golden State in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
