KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Kansas City officials have announced plans for the 2015 World Series parade and celebration for the champion Kansas City Royals.

The city says in a release that the 2.3 mile-long parade starts at noon Tuesday in the Power & Light District in downtown and heads north before ending at Union Station, where the victory rally is planned.

The Royals on Sunday won their first World Series crown since 1985 with a 7-2 win in 12 innings in Game 5 against the New York Mets in New York.

Royals starter Edinson Volquez threw two-hit ball for six innings. He pitched a day after returning from his father’s funeral in the Dominican Republic.

The city also says free transportation to the celebration area will be provided from various locations around the city.
