The Chicago Cubs have advanced to their first World Series since 1945 with a 5–0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS, and the celebration has begun.

In the locker room afterward, champagne and beer was flying, and several notable guests appeared like Eddie Vedder and Billy Williams.

Chicago got to Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw for five runs in the first five innings, which was more than enough for Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks. He allowed just two hits over 7 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out six before handing it over to Aroldis Chapman for the save.

Here’s some of the footage from the postgame celebration:

The Cubs will face the Cleveland Indians in the World Series, which begins on Tuesday.
