OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Warriors and the city of Oakland are gearing up for a victory rally and parade.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Wednesday that the festivities will start at 10 a.m. Friday in downtown Oakland.

The team won their first NBA title in 40 years Wednesday night.

The parade will begin on Broadway at 11th Street and end at the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center.

Fans can begin lining up for the rally at 5 a.m. at Lakeshore Avenue and 12th Street.

Bay Area Rapid Transit will run extra trains for the event.

The party started right after the team's win Wednesday night with a festive crowd gathered at an Oakland intersection. In San Francisco's Mission District, people waved the team's blue and gold flags. There were no immediate reports of any violence, vandalism or arrests.
