Strike up the band! The city of Baltimore is hosting a parade in honor of Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis.

The Ravens announced on their Twitter account that the parade will take place September 22 at 10 a.m., one day prior to their Week 3 matchup with the Denver Broncos

The parade will begin at Key Highway and Light Street and will end at City Hall/War Memorial Plaza. 

Lewis, who spent his entire 16-year career in the NFL with the Ravens, was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame back in August. 

A staple of the city, Lewis mentioned the impact Baltimore and those within the Ravens organization have had on his life during his passionate 33-minute speech.

Now, he will get to bring the gold jacket back to the city where it all started and celebrate with all those that filled the seats at M&T Bank Stadium throughout his illustrious career.
