Parking and admission is free for the NJ event. Tailgating is permitted.
According to the Giants website, Parking Lots F and G will be open to the public beginning at 11 a.m. and the stadium gates will open three hours later. The celebration on the MetLife Stadium field is expected to run from 3-3:30 p.m. Concession stands will be open.
New York’s parade will start at Battery Place and Washington Street at 11 a.m. and continue up the “Canyon of Heroes” to Worth Street, followed by a ceremony at City Hall Plaza, in which the mayor will present the Giants with the Keys to the City.
The City conducted a public giveaway for tickets to the City Hall Plaza ceremony on Monday between 9 and 11 a.m.
