Yankees' Parade to celebrate the team's first World Series victory in nine years will be held on Friday beginning at 11:00 a.m. EST.

The Yankees' parade route will march down the Canyon of Heroes. It will start on Broadway at Battery Place and continue northbound to Chambers Street, the team's website informed Thursday. Millions are expected to attend.

Derek (New York Yankees' captain) told me to be ready for the most incredible parade you've ever seen in your life, Mark Teixeira said, according to the Yankees website. To celebrate with the fans of New York, this is unbelievable. What a great city. 

We're going to enjoy it and we're going to party, Alex Rodriguez said, the site noted. 

A ceremony at City Hall Plaza will take place after the parade at  1:00 PM where Mayor Bloomberg will present the Yankees with Keys to the City. For tickets giveaway information click here.
