Lindsay Whalen and the Lynx aren’t done with the Barn yet.
The Lynx will celebrate their fourth WNBA title in seven years with a parade Thursday. But unlike previous post-title celebrations, this one won’t involve downtown Minneapolis or Target Center.
The finishing touches still are being put on the renovated Target Center, which will be unveiled for the Timberwolves opener Oct. 20. And besides, the Lynx didn’t play there this season. The parade will start at 6:30 p.m. on the corner of 12th Av. SE., proceed down University Av. toward Williams Arena and will end at the doors of the Barn.
Following the procession, the official championship celebration will begin at 7:15, where Lynx players and coaches will address the crowd. Radio play-by-play announcer John Focke will emcee the event.
Both events are free and open to the public.
Doors to Williams Arena will open at 6:30. The parade and celebration will be televised on Fox Sports North and also streamed on FSN’s social media channels.
