There was a championship parade for the Red Sox in Boston Wednesday.
It was the fourth party on the duck boats in the past 15 years for the Red Sox Wednesday.
The World Series championship trophy made its way from Fenway Park through Boston with thousands of fans cheering on the team.
“I love how they are getting championships, and they are a good team, and they’re competitive,” Joey Lafone of Halifax told 22News.
But Boston wasn’t always referred to as “Titletown.”
The Red Sox went 86 years at one point, from 1918 to 2004, without winning a World Series championship.
“I’ll tell you, it was something. It was,” said Herb McCabe of Haverhill.
Fans at the parade told 22News that the team went from being cursed.
“Every championship is special now,” David Olson of Connecticut added. “I was around for the first one in 2004 which was a long time coming.”
To now being celebrated.
“It’s almost surreal,” said David Bickum. “The fact that we’ve won all these times. It’s almost getting like, we kind of expect it, but we hope for it.”
Happy #RedSoxParade Day! The parade kicks off at 11 a.m. at Boylston Street by Fenway Park and ends at Staniford St. Fans are encouraged to travel by public transportation. Read more: https://t.co/Naltcvj4lx pic.twitter.com/94LNt9ljFS— Mayor Marty Walsh (@marty_walsh) October 31, 2018
