WATCH: NCAA Women’s Basketball champions take victory lap on San Antonio River Walk

The event will take place after the game and award ceremony.

SAN ANTONIO – The 2021 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball champions will be crowned at the end of the final buzzer on Sunday, and they’ll get to take a “once-in-a-lifetime” victory lap.

Following the final game, the championship team will board barges for a victory lap on the San Antonio River Walk.

The float parade culminates three weeks of competition in the area and surrounding cities. The event will begin at 9 p.m., Sunday, at the River Center Mall Lagoon after the game and award ceremony.

The championship team will board riverboats at the convention center and join the UTSA band and numerous confetti canons, officials said.

In keeping with COVID-19 safety guidelines, officials said the parade route has been “reimagined” and the team will float along the River Walk while maintaining social distancing guidelines.
