Parade of Champions |
More than 2 million fans showed up to cheer on the Blackhawks at their celebratory parade Friday morning. The sea of red and black resulted in absolute madness on the streets of Chicago.
The big parade and rally, with its stages, security barriers, jumbo-sized monitors, confetti cannons and security personnel, cost the city about $200,000 to pull off.
The goal was not to charge the Blackhawks because this was a party for them," said Special Events Director Megan McDonald, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "That would have been like having a surprise party for your best friend and making her pick up the bar bill."
