And that’s a wrap for this year’s parade. See you next spring, Sox fans.

1:08 p.m.

Yikes. Don’t throw a beer can at someone who’s not looking at you. The Boston Globe reports that one bystander might need stitches. And it doesn’t look like Cora appreciated this one too much.

12:37 p.m.

That is one way to use a vuvuzela, yes.

Behold, the GOAT!

11:41 a.m.

The boys are staying hydrated, looks like.

11:30 a.m.

What’s up, Mookie?

11:27 a.m.

Ladies and gentlemen, Steven Tyler.

11:20 a.m.

In case you missed it, David Price announced he’s “not going anywhere,” and won’t opt out of his contract.

11:05 a.m.

And they’re off!

11:03 a.m.

The Sox are aboard the ducks. Repeat, the Sox are aboard the ducks. And for real, how cool is Griff Holt.

11:01 a.m.

Jerry Remy, at Fenway, tells us he’s “kicking cancer’s ass!”

10:58 a.m.

The striking hotel workers from Unite Here Local 26 are out here. “Congrats Red Sox!” reads one sign. “Support the strike!”

10:52 a.m.

It’s a Red Sox victory parade on Halloween and you know what that means. It means Fenway Jesus and the Sox Lobster are on the prowl. Here are the best costumes we’ve seen so far.

Get a load of this guy’s hat! A New Yorker, no less.

The first David S. Pumpkins of the morning has been spotted. Here’s Dave Muntz with his family from Shrewsbury.

You can always count on New England sports fans to come through with the signage, and there is plenty of that along the parade route today.

10 a.m.

Gov. Charlie Baker, in a “Damage Done” hoodie, told fans and staff at Fenway Park that they’re living in the “golden age” for the Sox, and relived the glory of Game 5:

“When I saw Machado come up, when I saw the look on Chris Sale’s face, my reaction was, ‘I cannot think of a better guy to go down for out number three!’ It was awesome!!!”

9:30 a.m.

Good morning, Boston. And what a beautiful morning it is. Bright blue skies and temperatures in the upper 40s await revelers at the Red Sox victory parade today. The duck boats are lined up and ready to go, and will be setting off on their journey downtown at 11 a.m.

For those of you who still haven’t made it to the barricades, heed our advice on the best spots to watch it all go down, and grab a bite to eat while you’re at it.

And if you’re looking for some music to get you in the mood, be sure to crank up the volume for the unofficial song of the World Series: the must-listen “Red Sox Nonstop Remix” by a local DJ, which has been embraced by the players themselves.

Right now, season ticket holders, staff, and their families are gathered at Fenway Park waiting to see the players off. The team will then steer onto Boylston Street and make their way to Government Center.

Plenty of Red Sox fans are already there. Some of them have been there since last night, which is amazing.

Now that is commitment. I guess that’s what being the City of Champions is all about.

Stick with us for more updates as the day rolls along.

In the meantime, let’s goooooooo!
