Astros Celebrate 2022 World Series Title With Houston Parade
An estimated 1 million spectators lined the streets of Houston on Monday to celebrate the Astros’ 2022 World Series championship. The Astros were crowned champions for the second time on Saturday night, and a two-day party culminated in a city-wide shutdown to commemorate the occasion. The event went off without any major incidents aside from the boos of Sen. Ted Cruz. One fan was arrested for throwing a beer can at him. Overall, a rowdy day in the streets of Houston was mostly tame.
Celebrities on the Scene
Cruz wasn’t the only Houston celebrity at the parade. Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale made an appearance — the local celebrity known for his massive bets.
The Hat Toss Tradition
Fans recreated a viral moment from the 2017 celebration when they returned a dropped hat up several floors of a downtown parking garage. The same hilarious moment happened five years ago after the first World Series title.
