Fans lined the streets of Minneapolis Tuesday afternoon to catch a glimpse of their favorite All-Stars before Tuesday night's 7 p.m. game.

A 5,700-foot long red carpet stretched all the way from Nicollet Avenue and 13th Street, down South 7th Street and into Target Field to mark the path of the parade.

Hall of Famer Rod Carew, who was named grand marshal, led the parade of All-Stars to Target Field prior to Tuesday's game.

Also featured in the parade was a group of Minneapolis-area Little Leaguers, a number of Twins legends, and the 30 winners of the All-Star Teachers campaign, who will be honored before the game, the MLB said in a news release.

Fans lined the streets prior to the parade in order to get a good view of the players.
