Chicago Cubs fans, get ready to party like it’s 1908.

OK, maybe not exactly like it’s 1908, but for the first time in 108 years, the Cubs can call themselves MLB champs after defeating the Cleveland Indians, 8-7, in an instant-classic Game 7 of the World Series at Progressive Field on Wednesday night.

The city of Chicago is certainly no stranger to championship parades–the NHL’s Blackhawks have captured three Stanley Cup titles since 2010–but this is a party more than a century in the making.

According to an official release from the city of Chicago, the parade will leave Wrigley Field on Friday, November 4, at around 10 a.m. Central time.

Here are the complete timing and route details:

The official parade route will start at approximately 11 a.m., leaving Wrigley at approximately 10 a.m., and will travel along Michigan Avenue between Oak St. and Ohio St. and then along Columbus Dr. between Monroe St. and Balbo Ave. Fans who want to catch the downtown parade are encouraged to see them along this route.

Fans are encouraged to view the parade at the following locations:

-Addison from Sheffield to Pine Grove

-North Michigan Avenue from Oak St. to Ohio St.

-Columbus Dr. from Monroe St. to Balbo Ave.

The motorcade will arrive in Grant Park around Noon, when the Celebration Rally, which is free and open to the public, will begin.

Get ready, Chicago. This one is going to be absolutely massive:

    “Btw, “you out of towners” technically applies to the area burbs.”

    So what you are saying Deborah is we need to make chicago its own county- not leeching off of suburban coock county tax dollars to make itself so great…
    Never forget there are many ‘out of towners’ who take the train into that city to make it work… live in the same country

    You City people think you’re so special- you’re really not in the end… maybe some of you women should get up off your ass and go work for a living- instead of being stuck up city snob sluts

    • Apparently you did not read Deborah’s comment very well. As the “you out of towners” comment was directed at her by someone else. How about you not be such a jerk?

      • Thanks, at least you read and I had same thoughts as you. I’m done with it, my life is good and will remain very happy that Cubs are 2016 WS champs. Enjoy your day!

    • Well, I must have struck a nerve here. You assume I don’t work, along with other incorrect assumptions from your negative attitude. I was replying to prior comment from a guy named Mike as he thought I was an out of towner who would bring chaos. Purely from a technical view, anyone who lives outside of defined city limits is an out of towner, to any city I.e. do you live in town or in metro area? I’ve also commuted to suburban work location in 1 job and have suburban friends who thankfully have social grace, manners and respect, unlike your comments and obvious personal issues above. The Cubs have global fans which is fabulous. I had noted weekend parade would also bring in revenue for hotels, food and bars as many fans cannot attend a weekday parade. My comment was not directed to you & I will not waste time on this again. I hope God blesses you; someone needs to help you.

  4. Can’t they have it on Saturday? The whole city of Chicago has been waiting for this. Everyone should have an opportunity to be there. Saturday is the best logical day for EVERYONE! Pretty please?
