Happy Monday San Francisco. Here are your top headlines for June 20.
The Golden State Warriors will host a parade down Market Street in San Francisco on Monday to celebrate their fourth NBA championship in eight years. The Warriors clinched the title in Boston, defeating the Celtics 103-90.
The parade kicks off at 11:20 a.m. on Market and Main streets in downtown San Francisco. Players and coaches will make their way down Market Street, ending at Sixth Street around 2 p.m.
The Warriors called it "a free-flowing and engaging celebratory event for fans, with the opportunity to share in the up-close excitement of the 2022 NBA Championship with the Warriors, their players, coaches, legends and staff."
For those who are unable to attend, the event will be livestreamed on KRON 4, NBC Bay Area and ABC 7 and on air at 95.7 FM.
Hundreds lined up outside of San Francisco's Conservatory of Flowers on Saturday to see a famous flower bloom, SFGATE reports.
The new corpse flower named "Chanel" was expected to bloom Friday, according to SFGATE, so the conservatory alerted its Instagram followers. A few hundred people showed up with more joining on Satuday. Visitors aliked the corpse flower's distinct scent to moldy cheese and sweaty socks, while the staff said its a refined smell.
The conservatory also livestreamed the endangered plant's bloom to 54-inches.
The California Deparment of Fish and Wildlife on Sunday released 200,000 baby salmon into the San Francisco Bay to help them survive the migration season, KCBS News reports.
With California's worsening drought, the young fish might have an easier time reaching the ocean than later when water levels will be lower.
The department says all fish have been tagged and they will track their journeys.
