For all the Cubs fans flying the W outside of Chicago, WGN America has a belated Halloween treat for you.

The network announced Thursday that they will be airing commercial-free coverage of the Chicago Cubs World Series Victory Parade on Friday. (Specific times have not yet been released, but the parade is expected to begin at 11 a.m. CT.)

In what will go down as one of the most thrilling World Series games of all times, the Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in an extra innings nailbiter on Wednesday, ending a 108-year drought. The win was a huge deal for fans, including Bill Murray and Eddie Vedder, who have waited their entire lives for a pennant.

WGN America will broadcast the excitement on channels across the country. Find your local channel here.
