It's the final day of All-Star madness and it kicks off today with a red carpet parade of All-Stars on Sixth Ave. between 40th and 58th streets.

That means you'll get to see All-Star greats like Yogi Berra, Willie Mays and Whitey Ford strolling through the city streets. But it also means a lot of traffic disruptions today.

The parade will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., but some streets will remain closed until 6 p.m. So if you're a bus commuter, you could be in for a detour. The MTA will divert the following lines:

Due to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Red Carpet Event on Avenue of the Americas between West 34th Street and West 58th Streets, the following buses are being detoured: M5, M6, M7, X1, X6, X7, X9, BXM2, QM1, QM1A, QM2, QM2A, QM3, QM4, QM15, QM16, QM17, QM18, QM10, QM12 and QM22.
