MANHATTAN — New York City will see its 206th ticker tape parade on Friday when a triumphant women’s soccer team floats up Canyon of Heroes to celebrate their World Cup win.

The parade begins at 11 a.m. at Battery Park and follows Wall Street north to City Hall Park, according to the mayor’s office.

“All are invited to celebrate,” the mayor’s office said.

Spectators and fans can cheer on the talented team by setting up all along Broadway, or arrived early to try to snag to a coveted spot at City Hall Park, the end of the parade.
