It's 6 a.m. and beginning right now, you can park at the Coliseum for the noon rally that will last until 1 p.m. The later it gets, the more street and freeway onramp closures you'll face. Gates open at 9:30 a.m. and space is limited to 95,000 (it could definitely fill up). When the parade begins, Coliseum attendees will be able to watch it on big screen TVs. Of course, you can also view the parade in person along the 2.3 mile route on both sides of Figueroa Street between 11th Street and 39th Street.

The schedule is expected to go something like this:

  • 11:15 a.m. - All vehicles pass by STAPLES Center and L.A. LIVE
  • 11:20 a.m. - Official Parade Starts on Figueroa Street
  • 12:00 p.m. - Parade arrives at Memorial Coliseum & Rally Begins
  • 1:00 p.m. - Rally concludes

The Staples Center and the city's Traffic Info page share a lot more details. Basically, leave early, be patient and have a good time.
