Giants' World Series Victory Parade Set For Wednesday


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - For the second time in three years, San Francisco city officials are gearing up for a ticker-tape parade to celebrate the Giants' World Series victory.

Plans for the Wednesday event were being made as the city cleaned up after a rowdy World Series celebration turned violent in some neighborhoods and police arrested three dozen people.

City Hall says the parade will take a slightly different route from the one that followed the Giants' 2010 championship. Instead of the financial district, the parade will start at the foot of Market Street.

Mayor's Office spokesman Francis Tsang said the new route is safer and affords better views than the previous route.
