Chicago Cubs fans have waited 108 years to celebrate a World Series title.
On Friday, the Cubs and the city of Chicago threw one hell of a party as the route started at Wrigley Field and ran down Michigan, Columbus Drive and finally ended at Hutchinson Field in Grant Park.
Despite the announcement being made just a day before the parade, 6 million showed up to show their support for the Cubs. Check out the crowds on the route:
Before the parade kicked off, the city dyed the river blue as fans watched on:

The parade wrapped up at Hutchinson Field as the team addressed the crowd. It was an emotional moment for fans who have waited forever for this moment.
It was also emotional for Anthony Rizzo who gave a speech to the crowd on his teammate David Ross:
