CHICAGO — The Stanley Cup is returning to Edison Park on Saturday.
Edison Park Chamber of Commerce Director Melissa Panizzi expects "about 3,000" people to attend Saturday's rally, which is free.
"It's one of the most exciting things to work with the Chicago Blackhawks and to work with John McDonough ... and have the people celebrate with John and the Blackhawks," Panizzi said.
McDonough is using his day with the Stanley Cup to return to his former neighborhood, where he attended St. Juliana's.
Panizzi is asking spectators to walk to the event, as parking will be "very limited". No parking will be allowed on Harlem Avenue, but there will be limited parking available at nearby Pioneer Park, 7135 N. Harlem Ave., in Niles.
The event is subject to change, weather permitting.
McDonough and the Stanley Cup also came to Brooks Park in 2010 after the Blackhawks won their first NHL title since 1961. Panizzi said about 1,500 people attended that rally.
