A look around Wrigley Field before tonight’s historic World Series game

The Cubs have a chance to win a World Series game in Chicago for the first time in decades

Regardless of the outcome of this year’s World Series, history will be made tonight: The World Series has returned to Wrigley Field for the first time in 71 years. Fans were spotted waiting in line in front of the box office last night with the hopes of being able to score a pair of tickets to tonight’s game. Regardless, Wrigley Field and the surrounding area will be more alive than it has been in decades. The Cubs return to Chicago with the series tied 1-1, but the Cubs have an opportunity to wrap up the series back home if they can win the next three games in a row. Chicago buildings and institutions have dressed up for the occasion, but tonight will is the real deal—a chance for the Cubs to win a World Series game in Chicago.

Here’s a look around Wrigley Field in the lead up to tonight’s big game.

Good morning, beautiful. #WorldSeries #FlyTheW
