BATON ROUGE — LSU's parade celebrating its women's gymnastic team's national championship will be held Wednesday afternoon, and the public is invited to join the party. 

Tuesday, team members worked behind the counter at Raising Cane's just north of campus. WBRZ's Falon Brown was there and captured the team outside of its natural habitat. 

Here are the details for Wednesday's party:

Schedule:  The celebration will start at 6:30 p.m. in front of the Music Building on Dalrymple Drive.  From there, the parade will roll to the traffic circle outside the Journalism Building and then down the hill to the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.   A celebration will follow inside the PMAC at about 7 p.m.; doors will open at 6:00 p.m.   Food and beverages will be available for purchase, as well as LSU's national championship gear and merchandise.
