Mayor Nancy Rotering Proclaims Nov. 3 as Cubs World Series Champions Day in Highland Park.

A Fly the W ceremony was held the day following the Cubs historic win on Nov. 2.

The W flag was raised at the corner of Central and St. Johns avenues as city officials, residents and businesses joined in the celebration wearing their Cubs attire, cheering the 2016 Cubs roster, and singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and “Go Cubs Go.”

Following the ceremony, local businesses Arriva Dolce and the Dunkin’ Donuts in downtown Highland Park continued the celebration with free coffee and donuts.

“We’ve been waiting 108 years to celebrate the Cubs winning the World Series. What a fun opportunity to celebrate together as a community!” exclaimed Mayor Nancy Rotering. She encouraged all residents to fly the W proudly.
