Chicago officials released details on the Cubs' World Series victory parade


Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel said it would be a parade worth the 108-year wait. 

Chicago released its plans for the Cubs' World Series victory parade on Thursday, reports the Chicago Tribune. The procession will begin at Wrigley Field on Friday morning and end at Grant Park. 

Although city officials did not release the exact route, they did say the team will depart the ballpark at 10 a.m. and proceed south toward downtown, all leading up to a noon rally. 

The city is asking fans to watch from one of three locations:

  • Addison Street from Sheffield to Pine Grove avenues
  • North Michigan Avenue from Oak to Ohio streets
  • Columbus Drive between Monroe Street and Balbo Avenue

    At those three locations, the vehicles carrying the team will slow down to what officials say is "parade speed." 

Given the significance of the Cubs' win, the parade is sure to be well attended. 

Very, very well attended.
