The Chicago Blackhawks may have been in Philadelphia when they won the Stanley Cup, but fans gathered in bars and on the street to show their Blackhawks some love...loudly.
Honking horns, screams and "Woo! Hawks Win!" could be heard on the streets into early Thursday morning citywide. The chaos in Wrigleyville on the North Side led to 19 arrests, but police told the Chicago Tribune they were all "misdemeanor transgressions."
On Friday, fans and the team will gather downtown for a parade. The parade will begin at the intersection of Wacker Drive and Washington Street, proceed east to Michigan Avenue, then up Michigan to East Wacker Drive, where a rally is expected between 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
Early Thursday, the team brought the Cup back to Chicago. They were greeted by news cameras at the airport. Check out videos of the celebrations and the Hawks coming home here:
