(ESPN) – Players enjoyed their victory lap Friday, waving to millions of elated fans crowded along miles of city streets during a parade honoring the first Cubs team to win a World Series title in 108 years.

The Office of Emergency Management and Communications told the Chicago Tribune that an estimated crowd of 5 million packed the 7-mile parade route from Wrigley Field to Grant Park, where the party continued with a massive rally to celebrate the Cubs’ historic win.

Team manager Joe Maddon — wearing a stocking cap, sunglasses and a jersey over a “We didn’t suck” T-shirt — looked out over a sea of blue.

“Welcome to Cubstock 2016!” he shouted to the fans after carrying the World Series championship trophy onto the stage.
