It’s happening. No… it happened.

Cubs fans all over the world, rejoice! It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. The Chicago Cubs have won the World Series.

The city is on the brink of unparalleled celebration, and we can’t wait for every second of it. Are you ready for the Cubs World Series parade? We are, and we have been for over a hundred years!

So, where and when? Here’s what we know so far.

When

What we do know is that all MLB parades take place no sooner than 48 hours after the victory. Not to mention, Chicago Public Schools aren’t in session this Friday, which is pretty convenient.

It’s safe to say that the Cubs parade will take place this Friday, November 4.

Where

As for the location, well the word has been that it’ll likely be in Grant Park. It’s the most convenient place for a parade route, likely starting at Soldier Field and speculated to end all the way at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. Vendors are already being recruited for the championship parade of the century.

Tips

Judging on the reaction to previous parades, people will more than likely be camping out overnight for a spot. Get ready to get there as early as possible. Luckily, it’s slated to be a beautiful, sunny fall day this Friday, so feel free to get comfortable in what you wear!

When you’re there, remember to be safe and act responsibly. If you can’t make it, you can plan on all major television stations broadcasting the parade in its entirety.

So there you have it. This Friday, November 4 at Grant Park. Be ready. If anything changes, we promise you’ll be the first to know. Stay tuned for updates on exact parade routes and official times.

Based on previous pro sports championship parades like that of the 2013 and 2015 Stanley Cup, you can bet that the city will basically be shut down and in full celebration modes for days on end. But it’ll be worth it, Chicago, because the dream is coming true!
