HOUSTON (AP) — Houston is gearing up to pay tribute to the Astros and their World Series triumph over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The new champs will be honored with a parade that starts at 2 p.m. Friday and travels through downtown Houston, culminating in a rally on the City Hall steps. Mayor Sylvester Turner will be the master of ceremonies.
The Astros took the series with a Game 7 win Wednesday in Los Angeles.
All classes in the Houston school district have been canceled for the day.
