Here’s the scene at Rupp Arena this morning, where thousands of Cats fans are lined up to get tickets to today’s celebration. Tickets are FREE (limit four per person) and can be picked up at the Rupp Arena box office.
The party starts at 3:30 p.m., and will be televised by all of the local Lexington stations and WYMO in Louisville beginning at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2 p.m. and the team is expected to land at Bluegrass Airport at 3 p.m.
UPDATE: UK Athletics will stream the celebration LIVE, as well as a few other Lexington stations. We’ll provide the links closer to the event.
