They held up signs that read "World Champs" and "Goodbye Someday", a reference to the centential-long wait to win another series some day in the future. Center fielder Dexter Fowler had a cigar as the team headed toward a rally that some fans have called the "celebration of a century".

In addition to being streamed online, the parade will be televised by MLB Network and be shown during SportsCenter on ESPN. Local news stations like CBS and NBC will also be providing live coverage of the parade.

There might not be another celebration quite like what we are expecting out of the Chicago Cubs and their fans after 108 years of waiting.

The parade started at Wrigley Field then headed down Addison Street, North Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive before ending in Grant Park, where members of the team addressed their adoring public.

Huge crowds of Chicago Cubs fans were gathered outside of Wrigley Field in Chicago as the Cubs won their first World Series since 1908. Austin Karp of Sports Business Daily reported over 40 million people watched Game 7 between the Cubs and Cleveland Indians, the most for a baseball game in 25 years. As a result, the man put a hex on the Cubs and the team has not made it to the World Series until their most recent victory.

"Anything can happen", Cubs fan Joe Debald of Michigan City, Indiana, told the Chicago Sun-Times while joining other fans outside the historic stadium in Chicago.
