On Tuesday, July 9th, the All-Star red carpet show presented by Chevrolet begins at 12:30 pm on Lakeside Avenue near PLAY BALL PARK between Malls B and C.

All-Star players will ride in Chevy Silverados down Lakeside Avenue and East 9th street before arriving at Progressive Field.

Players and their guests will then walk the red carpert from the corner of Eagle Avenue and East 9th street into Progressive Field.

Fans are also invited to line the red carpet parade through downtown Cleveland. The event is free to all fans.

Cleveland Indians legends Jim Thome and Sandy Alomar Jr. were named Grand Marshals of the parade. The two iconic Indians will be at the front of the parade in a Corvette.

AL and NL All-Star Team Managers, Alex Cora and Dave Roberts, will each ride through Cleveland in their own Chevrolet vehicles, as well.

There will also be MLB mascots along the route giving away special "All-Star keepsakes," and at the end of the parade celebration, fans can catch a glimpse of the Commissioner’s Trophy, which is presented annually to the World Series Champion.

If you can't make it out to downtown, MLB Network will air the parade at 3 p.m.
