All-Stars are set to travel east on Lakeside before turning down East 9th Street in their Chevrolet Silverados and head toward Progressive Field.

The parade winds down after one mile at the ballpark’s Right Field Gate near the corner of East 9th and Larry Doby Way (Eagle Avenue).

Fans are invited to line the streets to welcome some baseball’s brightest stars.

Former Cleveland Indians’ Jim Thome and Sandy Alomar Jr. will lead the way as grand marshals ahead of the ceremony.

Events will kick off as early as Friday, July 5, when Twenty Pilots and Cleveland’s own Welshly Arms perform at the All-Star weekend concert series.
