SAN FRANCISCO — For the second time in three years, San Francisco is gearing up for a ticker-tape parade to celebrate a World Series victory for the Giants.

Plans for the Wednesday bash were being made as the city cleaned up after a rowdy celebration Sunday night turned violent in some neighborhoods and police arrested three dozen people.

"I'm not going to let the spirit of this city be destroyed by 36 people," Mayor Ed Lee said. "We're going to move forward with a great parade, a wonderful celebration."

The parade will take a slightly different route from the one that followed the Giants' 2010 championship. Instead of the financial district, it will start at the foot of Market Street.
