72. Head Down to the Blackhawks’ Parade

Home Newsroom 72. Head Down to the Blackhawks’ Parade

My husband just got to his office in the Loop and says the Barrington Metra train was PACKED this morning with people in Blackhawks jerseys heading down to the city for the Chicago Blackhawks championship tickertape parade. (Wish I had thought to ask him to take pictures – though he probably would have told me I’m nuts.) He took the 7:11 train and says it looked like a lot of dads are playing hooky from work today to take their kids to see the Stanley Cup Champs and he told me, “there are so many people coming down here for this rally, it’s ridiculous!”  Here’s the route for today’s parade.

Chicago Hawks Championship Parade

Hawks fans have been lining up along the parade route all morning. Some fans even set up camp at midnight! The city of Chicago is expecting about 350,000 people for today’s parade which starts at 10:30 this morning at Wacker and Washington and will end with the Hawks rally at 11:30 this morning on the southwest corner of Michigan and Wacker, right by the river and across from the Wrigley Building.

If you can swing it, there’s still time to catch a Metra train from downtown Barrington. You’ll find today’s Metra schedule by clicking HERE.  The Hawks haven’t won this since 1961, so it’s a rare opportunity and a fun way to spend a Friday in our favorite big city!
