City Hall

The View From the Convention Center. And: Dallas PD Has Already Closed Victory Plaza.

Nick and Patrick are at the convention center; another photographer's embedded with the Mavs inside the barricades; another is posted at the American Airlines Center. That said, we won't beat you down with all-day posts from today's parade; only when it's appropriate and when it's over. But here, two hours before the beginning, fair warning: It's crowded and only getting more packed, from DART to the corner of Young and Griffin, where Mayor Dwaine Caraway's presently making the rounds.

Update at 8:12 a.m.: This just in from Dallas City Hall:

Dallas Police have now closed Victory Plaza because it has reached the 3,000 person maximum capacity. Please find another spot along the parade route to enjoy the celebration.
