KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) — As the Chiefs season nears a close at the Super Bowl, city leaders have begun preparations for a potential celebration.
During a meeting of the Transportation, Infrastructure and Operations Committee Wednesday morning, city leaders said that if the Kansas City Chiefs win, the plan is for a parade to be held on Wednesday, Feb. 15. The expected number of participants is at least 500,000.
Thursday, February 16 would serve as a backup day if Wednesday doesn’t work.
The parade would culminate with a rally at Union Station, similar to the Royals World Series parade in 2015 and the Chiefs Super Bowl parade in 2020.

Further planning will likely be done during a Wednesday afternoon meeting involving city, chiefs, Jackson County, the Power & Light District, law enforcement and other local officials.
