KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals and their fans will throw one of the biggest parties in the city’s history to celebrate the team’s first World Series championship in 30 years.

The Royals became World Series champions Sunday with a 7-2 victory in 12 innings over the New York Mets. It was the first championship for the Royals since 1985, which was followed by decades of losing baseball that caused many in the city to abandon the team.

City officials said they expect at least 200,000 people to pack into the 2.3-mile parade route Tuesday through downtown Kansas City to cheer as the players, coach

At the same time, a celebration is planned in Salina. The public is invited to a victory celebration event on Tuesday at Buffalo Wild Wings. KSAL will be broadcasting live, and the victory parade and rally that follows it will be on the TVs throughout the restaurant. There will will be live radio reports from along the Kansas City parade route as well.

As part of the celebration in Salina there will be prizes, including 1,150 free wings which will be given away, while supplies last with limit per person.

The Royals victory party in Salina is from noon until 3, at Buffalo Wild Wings on South 9th Street.
