The City of Arlington is excited to invite fans from across North Texas to celebrate the 2023 World Champion Texas Rangers at a World Series Victory Parade on Friday, Nov. 3, 2023, in the Entertainment District. The free event is open to the public.

“The Texas Rangers’ World Series victory is a dream five decades in the making,” Arlington Mayor Jim Ross said. “Mayor Tom Vandergriff went to D.C. and convinced the Washington Senators to become the Texas Rangers and move to what at that time was a small bedroom community in the middle of the Metroplex. The Rangers have stayed with Arlington for 51 years. We’ve helped them build three stadiums here, the community has supported them, the City Councils have supported them, and the Rangers have reciprocated year after year with their commitment to the community. This year, they reciprocated with a World Series championship. We want fans to come out to the Entertainment District this Friday and really enjoy the moment, soak it all up and have a great time.”

Starting at 8 a.m., parking lots surrounding Globe Life Field, Choctaw Stadium, AT&T Stadium, and the Esports Stadium Arlington + Expo Center will be open to the public to park for free.
