Fundraising push a success for UConn championship parade

All the necessary funds for tomorrow's parade to honor the national champion UConn women's basketball team have been secured.

The parade will begin at 1 p.m. at the State Capitol and will be followed at approximately 1:30 p.m. by a rally on Trumbull Street in front of the XL Center.

Here's a list of the businesses who provided funds so the parade could be held

Webster Bank
Mohegan Sun
The Travelers Companies, Inc.
CT Lottery
The Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company
Bank of America
Moe's Southwest Grill
ProHealth Physicians
The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc.
Frontier Communications
Virtus Investment Partners

The 2016 parade route begins at the State Capitol building on the corner of Trinity Street and Elm Street. It proceeds north on Trinity Street, goes through the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Arch, turns right (east) onto Jewell Street, turns left (north) onto Trumbull Street, and ends at the intersection of Asylum Street and Trumbull Street, just steps away from where the rally will be held in front of the main entrance of the XL Center.

Parking: Starting at 12 noon on Sunday, all Hartford Parking Authority, LAZ Parking and Propark managed properties in the vicinity of the parade route will be $5 or $6. As always, on-street parking is free on Sunday. On-street parking along the parade route and near the rally will be off-limits to facilitate event viewing.

From CTtransit: As a result of street closures associated with the Victory Parade and Rally, some bus routes in Downtown Hartford will follow temporary detours starting at approximately 12:30 p.m. Buses will return to regular routing as soon as the parade or street closures conclude, approximately 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. During this time, bus routes using Gold St., Pearl St. or Asylum St. will be detoured in downtown Hartford. Service on Main St. or Capitol Ave. will not be affected. During the temporary detours, all buses from the west (including CTfastrak service) will use Spruce and Church Streets to enter and exit the downtown area. CTfastrak buses will not serve stops on Asylum St. at Bushnell Park, at Asylum & Trumbull, or Asylum & High, on Gold St. or on Pearl St. (TheaterWorks) during the detours. CTfastrak buses will serve the stop on Main St. at Travelers and use Church St. outbound (vs. Asylum). CTtransit buses from the west (Routes 60-66, 72, 74, 76) will follow regular routing from Union Station via Church St. to downtown, and also use Church St. outbound (vs. Asylum).
