The Stanley Cup made an appearance at Chicago's Millennium Park.

The 35-pound, 3-foot high silver trophy was at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion and visitors were able to take pictures with it.

Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events had announced the Chicago Blackhawks' championship trophy would be on display from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday.

Admission was free, and lines started forming at 8 a.m. on the west side of the pavilion. The department advised that queuing would be stopped if time becomes an issue.

The Chicago Blackhawks won their third championship in six years in June.
