Canyon of Heroes Ticker-Tape Parade for the U.S. Women's National Team

Announced Sunday by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio

When: 9:30 a.m., Wednesday, July 10

Where: Canyon of Heroes along Broadway from the Battery to City Hall

History:

Ticker tape, a one-inch-wide ribbon of paper on the "ticker" machine that recorded stock quotes, was invented in 1867. Office workers would throw the paper out skyscraper windows to create a dramatic swirling effect during public celebrations.

The first official ticker-tape parades welcomed home the soldiers of World War I.

The first such parade for champion athletes was held for the U.S. Olympic team in 1924.

Starting in 1919, the mayor of New York City has decided who receives a ticker-tape parade.

The most recent ticker-tape parade was held on July 10, 2015, for the U.S. Women's National Team after its Women's World Cup win.

Other ticker-tape parades held since 2000:

Oct. 30, 2000, for the New York Yankees, World Series champions

Feb. 5, 2008, for the New York Giants, Super Bowl XLII champions

Nov. 6, 2009, for the New York Yankees, World Series champions

Feb. 7, 2012, for the New York Giants, Super Bowl XLVI champions
