Chicago Blackhawks Parade 2010 Details
The Chicago Blackhawks parade for 2010 will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, June 11.

According to a release from the city's Office of Emergency Management and Communication, the celebratory ticker-tape parade and rally for the Stanley Cup champions will start at the intersection of Wacker Drive and Washington Street. The parade will then proceed east on Washington St. to Michigan Ave., before heading north on Michigan to Wacker Drive.

The rally will take place approximately 11:30 a.m. at Wacker and Michigan.

Additional details will be announced by city officials Thursday.

It'll be a very busy weekend for Chicago fans as the Crosstown Classic opens Friday at Wrigley Field. The White Sox and Cubs will start their three-game series Friday with a 1:20 p.m. local start time, so you can imagine many fans will rejoice in the parade before taking in some baseball.

Thousands of fans partied on the streets of Chicago after the 4-3 overtime victory on Wednesday night, with no early complaints of rowdiness reported by Chicago police.

Uncontrolled emotion, utter disbelief, wild jubilation -- all common themes for Blackhawks fans after the team ended a 49-year drought. Perhaps the most amusing quote of the night came from Charles Horn, a longtime season-ticker holder who watched Chicago lose a heartbreaking Game 7 in the 1971 Finals.

"It's like the equivalent of a girlfriend who broke up with me long ago wanting to date me again," Horn told the Chicago Tribune. "That game in '71 has been like a cloud over my head."
