Cubs to pay $388k to repair Grant Park after Victory Parade

The Chicago Cubs won their first World Series since 1908 and Cubs fans had a victory parade of over five million people which was the largest gathering of humans in North America at one time.

Fans were packed everywhere trying to get a glimpse of their favorite Cubs players as they brought home the title for the city of Chicago.

Now the cleanup begins after the Victory Parade.

The Chicago Cubs will have to pay park officials 388,000 to repair Grant park according to Jessica Maxey-Faulkner, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Park District. Most of the costs are for clean up of the trash and the repairs to the fences and re-sodding of the grass.
