The Houston Astros had a night to remember on Saturday as they clinched their second World Series title in the last six years with a 4-1 over the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 6.
And so today, the City of Houston rejoices as their Astros celebrate yet another championship.
This afternoon, fans will be gathering in downtown Houston for the World Series parade.
On Twitter, Brian McTaggart, the Astros’ MLB.com beat writer, posted a video of fans filing into downtown Houston to witness the parade on a nice sunny fall afternoon as the city celebrates their team and what they accomplished to reach this point.

Astros Fans Ready For Parade
The fans will be loud in downtown Houston this afternoon.
For the second time in the last six years, the Astros are World Series champions and have a reason to celebrate, as do their loyal fans.
The Astros won an American League-best 106 games en route to another AL West title.
They swept the Seattle Mariners in the ALDS and did the same to the New York Yankees in the ALCS.
Now, they celebrate yet another championship after they closed out the resurgent Phillies in Game 6 on Saturday night.
Fans in Houston have been lucky enough to see the Astros emerge as a contending ballclub after years of frustration and heartbreak.
The Astros have made the postseason in seven of the last eight seasons, have gone to the ALCS six straight years and have reached the World Series four times, winning twice.
Houston has created a dynasty, and today, fans will celebrate that dynasty with their team.
