(CBS Connecticut) –  Connecticut fans will honor the University of Connecticut men’s and women’s basketball teams for their dual National Championships with a parade on Sunday (April 13.)  The parade honoring the Huskies will start at 4:00 p.m.

Governor Malloy announced the parade Wednesday morning,   before an event on farmland preservation  His voice was hoarse —  the result,  he explained,  of a cold,  combined with cheering for the basketball teams the last two nights.

The parade will begin at the State Capitol, travel north on Trinity Street, right on Jewell Street,  left on Gold Street,  right onto Main Street,  then right on Capitol Avenue,  before returning to the Capitol,  to be followed by a victory rally on the north steps of the Capitol.

Private funds will support the parade and rally,  and organizers are offering sponsorship levels from $2500 or less to $10,000.  Anyone interested in being a parade sponsor should call Michael Zaleski at the Hartford Business Improvement District,  (860) 728-2274,  or e-mail mzaleski@hartfordbid.com.
