Are you ready for one of the biggest celebrations in Seattle history?
Tomorrow's Super Bowl XLVIII victory parade will culminate with a brief championship celebration within the friendly confines of CenturyLink Field featuring Seahawks players, coaches, staff, and the franchise's first Lombardi Trophy.
Seahawks season-ticket holders have been invited to attend Wednesday's at-capacity event set to begin at roughly 1 p.m. PT. Fans will be able to watch the team's victory parade beginning at 11 a.m. on the stadium's video boards with soda, water, and hot dogs available for purchase at concessions stands throughout. Gates open at 10:30 a.m. with open stadium seating. Season-ticket holders can still print tickets to the event through this evening by visiting their Account Manager.
The adjacent Safeco Field will also open Wednesday to carry a live feed of the victory parade and CenturyLink Field's on-field presentation on the ballpark's large video boards. Tickets to Safeco Field are free and available to print on a first-come, first-serve basis on Mariners.com. Seating at Safeco Field will be general admission with the field's gates opening at 10:30 a.m.
UPDATE: At 10:55 p.m. PT Tuesday, the Seattle Mariners tweeted that Safeco Field is at capacity for Wednesday's viewing party.
Parking will be extremely limited at CenturyLink Field, Safeco Field, along the parade route, and its surrounding areas. Carpooling and utilizing public transportation are your best bets here. Wednesday's forecast calls for a high of 32 degrees and sunshine, so be sure to dress warm and dust off your favorite pair of shades.
All of Wednesday's activities will be broadcast live by several area news stations, with a large number of viewing locations available along the team's parade route (4th Avenue). A live stream will also be available here on Seahawks.com.
And in case you missed our announcement earlier this week, here's everything you need to know about Wednesday's victory parade:
11 a.m. PT. The parade will take approximately two hours.
Beginning just south of Seattle Center at Denny Way (outside the EMP museum), traveling south down 4th Avenue through Westlake Park, finishing at the north entrance to CenturyLink Field.
Seahawks players, coaches, staff, the Sea Gals, Blitz, Blue Thunder Drumline, and the Lombardi Trophy will ride military vehicles and Seattle's "Ride the Ducks" carriers.

Anything Seahawks (duh). Sunshine is in the forecast, but temperatures will be in the mid-20s when the parade kicks off. Wednesday's high calls for 32 degrees, so dress warm.
#Celebrate48 is the official hashtag for Wednesday's festivities.
