9:44 a.m.: The parade begins at Wrigley Field and eventually makes it way to Grant Park for the rally. The Grant Park gates just opened, and well, it went how you’d expect.
9:18 a.m.: Water is already kind of, sort of blue, but Chicago apparently is going to make sure they really drive home the point by coloring the Chicago River blue for the day.
9:15 a.m.: Cubs fans apparently wasted no time getting after it, as spots around the parade route are obviously very valuable.
9:08 a.m.: You think Chicago is pumped up for this or what?
9 a.m. ET: The Chicago Cubs are World Series champions, and now they’re going to throw a party like the city hasn’t seen in a long, long time.
The Cubs won a memorable Game 7 on Wednesday night in Cleveland, winning their first world championship in more than 100 years. Now they’re back home and on Friday, the Cubs will celebrate that first title since 1908 with the fans of Chicago at the World Series parade.
You can watch the parade online, but we’ll also be following along and posting any notable updates throughout the day, so be sure to check back often.
