Details: Friday’s Cubs Parade

(CHICAGO) The City of Chicago will celebrate the Chicago Cubs World Series win with a parade Friday morning followed by a rally in the afternoon.

“We’re going to have a parade in Chicago that will stand the test of time,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Thursday. He was in attendance for Game 7 in Cleveland where the Cubs beat the Indians 8-7 in 10 innings.

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. Drivers should expect road closures along the route.

A celebration rally will take place at Lower Hutchinson Field in Grant Park at approximately noon, when the motorcade arrives in Grant Park. The rally is free and open to the public. All attendees must pass through security screening at entrances at Michigan Ave. and Jackson Blvd. and at Michigan Ave. and Congress Pkwy. Closed water bottles will be allowed into the rally and food vendors will be on site.

Metra will be adding additional cars and trains and the CTA will offer additional service to customers traveling into the Loop on Friday morning.

Earlier Thursday, reports said that the city was pushing for a Monday parade and rally while the Cubs were pushing for Friday. Coincidentally, Chicago Public School students have Friday off for a “school improvement day.”
