The city of Boston will host a “rolling rally” for the World Champion Red Sox beginning at noon Tuesday.

The team will be carried on duck boats – World War II vintage amphibious vehicles – from Fenway Park, down Boylston Street, through Copley Square. They will follow Boylston along the lower part of Boston Common then turn left onto Tremont, going against the regular flow of traffic, and continue past City Hall Plaza.

The parade will pause at three spots – Copley, across from the Parkman Bandstand at Boston Common and at City Hall – so closer Jonathan Papelbon can dance his now-famous Irish jig on a flatbed truck, accompanied by the Dropkick Murphys. There will be large TV screens set up at each location.

Unlike the 2004 victory parade, the ducks will not travel into the Charles River.

The slow-rolling rally will end at New Chardon and Cambridge Streets.

The MBTA will be running rush-hour service throughout the day to accommodate the crowds.
