WRIGLEYVILLE — Cubs fans party hard.
That much was clear Saturday night, when the Cubs won the National League title for the first time since 1945, and several fans celebrated by climbing streetlights and camera poles.

Onlookers watched the fans climb higher and higher. Some gasped, fearing a fatal fall. Others yelled for the climbers to come back to the street.
Chicago Police did not interfere with the elevated celebration, and fans were able to safely climb down to the street on their own.
