When is the Chicago Cubs World Series championship parade?
The Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series with 8–7 win over the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 on Thursday morning and plans are already underway for the championship parade.
The Cubs ended a 108-year drought to win their first World Series since 1908. The team overcame a 3–1 series deficit by winning Game 5 at Wrigley Field and Games 6 and 7 at Progressive Field.
Team chairman and owner Tom Ricketts was asked about the Cubs' celebration plans in Chicago and when a parade would be scheduled for.
"I have no idea, either Friday or Monday, I imagine." Ricketts said.
Here are the details:
Date: Friday, Nov. 4
Time: Noon ET
Schedule: Parade begins at Wrigley Field and will make its way down Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive to Grant Park.
