Can you imagine the Astros Parade watch party they had in heaven? We're sure KHOU 11 Sports Director Bob Allen, who passed away last year, was in the middle of it all. And longtime Astros announcer Milo Hamilton was doing the play-by-play. And former stars like Joe Niekro, Darryl Kile, Ken Caminiti and Jose Lima were cheering for the champions.

Cheers, tears as Astros pass through downtown

Many of the Astros fans who turned out for the World Series Parade have watched the team for decades. Everyone cheered -- and some cried happy tears -- as they finally watched a dream come true. KHOU 11 Meteorologist Chita Craft was cheering so loud she nearly lost her voice.

Crowd goes crazy when Astros pass by

It was the moment hundreds of thousands of fans had waited hours for: The World Series Champion Houston Astros were the highlight of the parade as they passed by on three HFD fire trucks. Astros Hall of Famers Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell joined other former 'Stros on the third truck.

It was great to see Astros Hall of Famers Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio join the team on fire trucks for the World Series Championship Parade. They were also in Los Angeles when the Astros crushed the Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7.

Biggio told he got a little teary after watching the team win it all.

"You're old, you cry now," Biggio said. "It's what you're supposed to do."

Bagwell and Biggio, two of the most popular Astros of all time, played on seven playoff teams but only made it to one World Series where they were swept by the White Sox in 2005.


Da plane, da plane!

KHOU 11 showed our Astros pride with a banner that reads "KHOU stands with the Astros" flying high over downtown Houston. Fans cheered as the plane flew over.

We spotted the World Champion Houston Astros leaving Minute Maid to head over to the parade. MVP George Springer was carrying the World Series Championship trophy and Josh Reddick was sporting a giant orange foam cowboy hat.

The aircraft will be flown by NASA research pilots David Johnson and William Pressley and astronauts Jeremy Hansen, Josh Cassada, Tracy Caldwell-Dyson, Jessica Meir, Tom Marshburn and Mike Fincke.


Earlybirds get the prime spots

Diehard Astros fans determined to get the best seats for the World Series Championship Parade headed downtown at 1 a.m. Friday morning.

The City of Houston said Thursday it's expecting at least 700,000 fans to turn out. But the crowds grew so quickly Friday morning, they were forced to extend the parade route to St. Joseph's.


We're going to Disney World!

After Houston celebrates the Astros at home on Friday, the championship team will be going to Disney World for a World Series victory parade.

World Series MVP George Springer and star players Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa will be honored with a historic victory parade down Main Street, U.S.A., at Magic Kingdom Park.
