CHICAGO — The Chicago River was dyed “Cubbie Blue” on Friday morning in honor of the World Series champion Chicago Cubs.

The process to dye the river started Friday morning in downtown Chicago — just hours before a parade and rally in Grant Park

The Cubs won the World Series on Wednesday night with a dramatic 8-7, 10-inning win over the Cleveland Indians in Game 7.

The win ended a 108-year title drought for the Cubs, the longest in North American professional sports history.

According to DNAinfo, the same family that dyes the river green every St. Patrick’s Day Weekend was handling the color change for the Cubs.
