The parade will start at 10:30 a.m. with players and some staff riding a double-decker bus through downtown. It will start at Wacker Drive and Washington, head east on Washington Street to Michigan Avenue, and from Michigan it will travel to Wacker. The parading will end around 11:30 a.m. at Michigan and Wacker, where a stage will be set up for a championship rally.
As if that weren't going to be crazy enough, this sports town will host the Crosstown Classic later that afternoon. The Cubs and White Sox will kick off a three-game series in Wrigely Field.
If you want to take part in the day of sports fun and get a chance to cheer at Patrick Kane and company, make sure you take public transportation and to watch out for drunken sports fans.
