For the first time in franchise history, the Houston Astros are World Series Champions!
The Astros won 4 games to 3, earning the Astros, and Texas, its first World Series title.
Although the Dodgers hosted Game 7, thousands of Astros fans gathered at Minute Maid Park in Houston.
Not only is the entire city of Houston celebrating the big win but they’re doing it in a big way.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner says the city of Houston will honor the Astros with a parade on Friday in celebration of the team’s first MLB Championship victory.
The parade will begin at 2 p.m., with city workers set to shut down the parade route beginning at 1 p.m.
The celebration will begin on Smith at Lamar, proceeding north on Smith, east on Walker, south on Milam, west on Pease, north on Smith and ending at Lamar Street.
As a result, HISD Superintendent Richard Carranza announced that the district’s schools, facilities and administrative offices will be closed Friday so that students and staff could enjoy the Astros World Series parade and festivities.
