Kings fans hoping to carry on their Stanley Cup celebrations will have another chance Thursday at a parade and rally scheduled in downtown Los Angeles.

The parade is to start at noon near 5th and Figueroa, proceed south on Figueroa and end between L.A. Live and Staples Center, the team confirmed after securing its first Stanley Cup on Monday with a 6-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils.

Players and their families, coaches and others are expected to ride in double-decker buses and other vehicles during the 30- to 45-minute parade.

An hourlong "championship rally" is scheduled to begin at Staples Center at 2:30 p.m., featuring video highlights, presentations and speeches from several players, the team said.

Tickets are required, but are free. They will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis and are available online. Officials said season-ticket holders and suite and premier seat owners would be given first priority, with the remaining tickets made available to the public at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

There is a limit of four tickets per order, officials said.

[For the Record, 8:52 a.m. June 12: An earlier version of this post stated that tickets to the Kings' "championship rally" would be available to the public on Monday. They are to be made available at 6 p.m. Tuesday.]
