The Lawrence community and Jayhawk fans far and wide are invited to come out and celebrate the Kansas Jayhawks on Sunday afternoon.

“Featuring the Kansas Spirit Squad, band, and of course, the national championship-winning basketball team, the parade will begin on 6th street at 2 p.m., with the team being escorted down Mass Street in multiple vehicles,” according to an email announcing the event.

Massachusetts Street will be closed beginning at 3 a.m. until roughly two hours after the parade on Sunday, according to the email. The parade route is from Sixth Street south to 19th.

Starting at 11 a.m. Sunday, fans can park at Lot 90, the Burge Union and the Computer Center to take a shuttle downtown for the parade; shuttles will run up to an hour after the parade.

“The parade is part of ‘Wave the Wheat Weekend’ in Lawrence, which kicks off Friday night with both baseball and softball in action at 6 p.m., with baseball taking on Illinois State and softball battling Baylor,” the email says.

“On Saturday, the FNSA Powwow and Indigenous Cultures Festival at The Lied Center is set for 9 a.m., with the Grand Entry #1 planned for noon, while the Kansas Football Spring Preview is scheduled for 1 p.m., at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.
