BOSTON – Boston is preparing for a World Series parade that’s expected to draw hundreds of thousands of Red Sox fans into the city to thank the team for a remarkable season.

The parade is set to begin this morning. The players will climb aboard 24 amphibious vehicles at Fenway Park and travel through the city before going into the Charles River.

Security will be tight during the event, with extra police on hand throughout the day and random searches of backpacks along the parade route.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority plans to run extra trains and subways at a rush-hour level.
