Bregman just pulled up to my daughter & asked “so, where’s this parade supposed to be?” I’d like to welcome you to the family, son. #Astrospic.twitter.com/CWW0CAxzyz

Now this teacher knows how to handle an Astros’ parade, unlike that stuffy professor from before.

The Astros’ parade was extended because of the number of people who showed up to see it, and the way to counter the extra distance was apparently for the vehicles carrying the team to drive fast enough for multiple tweets to comment on. Slow down, y’all!

That frightening head float from before is much worse in motion.

Looks like this won’t be the last parade for a few Astros, as there’s going to be one at Disney too for George Springer, Jose Altuve, and Carlos Correa.

George, Altuve and Correa will be honored with a victory parade down Main Street, U.S.A., at Magic Kingdom Park tomorrow.

Houston’s own Travis Scott is on the scene to celebrate too.

The team, and the big shiny trophy they just won, are riding on a pretty nice fire truck.

Fans are also spraying water everywhere because it’s 86 degrees in Houston, which is fair and probably appreciated by everybody standing out there. As opposed to what it would have been like in, say, Minnesota at this point where spraying water could have caused a long term illness or two.

WOO CONFETTI!

World Series MVP George Springer gave a speech to the crowds as well, because what’s a good parade without a rousing speech by the star of the series?

Correa also did an overhead lift of the trophy.
