CELEBRATION! Chicago had a victory parade and rally of the century in honor of the Chicago Cubs World Series hard-fought win. On Friday, November 4, 2016, the caravan of double-decker red buses carrying the Cubs began at Wrigley Field, went down Michigan Avenue then Columbus Drive to Grant Park in downtown Chicago. Five million people came out to cheer for their Cubbies along the parade route and at Grant Park. After a number of speeches by Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, by coach Joe Maddon and by the several players on the team, the crowd and the Cubs enthusiastically sang "Go Cubs Go" led by singer Brett Ellredge.
