Kansas to host huge party

The Kansas City Royals will host one of the biggest celebrations in the city's history to celebrate the team's first World Series victory in 30 years.

The Royals claimed a 4-1 victory over the New York Mets after winning Sunday's fifth game of the series 7-2.

The previous time the Royals tasted World Series success was in 1985, but after that victory, decades of disappointing results followed which resulted in many of the city's baseball fans to abandon the team.

According to Kansas City officials, more than 200,000 people are expected to pack the parade route through downtown Kansas City the cheer on players, coaches and other team officials, before the party continues at Union Station.
