Just like Chicago’s other championship teams did after winning their titles, the Sky celebrated their franchise’s greatest triumph with a downtown parade and rally Tuesday morning in the city.
The celebration for the 2021 WNBA champs began at 11 a.m. CT with a parade from Wintrust Arena, where the Sky clinched their title with a 80-74 win over the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday. From there, the party buses made their way down Michigan Avenue from Roosevelt Road to Randolph Street before the real party at Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.
The rally at the park was loaded with fans Tuesday afternoon. Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Gov. J.B. Pritzker were also on hand to celebrate the city’s latest sports championship. Once the Sky players finally got from the parade to the rally stage, there was a steady stream of loud roars from the crowd.
