5 million Cubs fans attend parade, rally


People from all over the country went to Chicago on Friday to attend the parade and rally to celebrate the Cubs' World Series win. The win was 108 years in the making and the fans celebrated like it.

An estimated 5 million people flooded the streets of Chicago to get a glimpse of history.

That included fans from Michiana including Jeffrey Taylor, who worked for the South Bend Cubs this summer.

Taylor, like many fans, is still in disbelief.

"Is this really happening? It was amazing experience, amazing feeling because we are living history right now. A generation of people didn't get to experience this. Like I said, this is 108 years in the making, so to be a part of this is an amazing feeling," said Taylor.

The party started at 11:47 p.m. Wednesday and is expected to last all weekend.
