CHICAGO, Ill. - An estimated six million people flooded city streets for a parade and rally after the Chicago Cubs made history winning their first World Series Championship in more than a century.

After 108 years, the Curse of the Billy Goat is no more. Fans from around the country came to Chicago to take part in Friday's festivities. The celebration began in the morning at the Chicago River which was dyed 'Cubbie Blue' for the occasion.

Excited fans were recorded doing 'trust falls' from a statue in Grant Park. Others chose to climb flag poles or even buildings to catch a glimpse of the championship team as they made their way through the city in a 5-mile parade which ended at Hutchinson Field in Grant Park for a victory pep rally.
