If you are planning on attending the public visitation or funeral for Cubs legend Ron Santo on Thursday or Friday, here are more details.
The public visitation will be held at Holy Name Cathedral from 4 to 11 pm CST on Thursday, December 9. Because the Cathedral must close its doors by midnight, they are asking that you be in line by 11 p.m. to ensure that you’ll be allowed in. The line will begin on State Street and head north toward Chicago Avenue.
Friday’s funeral service will commence at 10 a.m. Among the eulogists will be Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts and WGN Radio’s Pat Hughes.
After the Holy Name Cathedral service on Friday, the funeral procession will embark on a route towards Wrigley Field. The procession will leave Holy Name Cathedral and drive north on State Street, east on Chicago Avenue, south on Michigan Avenue, turn around in front of Wrigley Building before pausing in front of WGN Radio (Tribune Tower), north on Michigan Avenue to inner Lake Shore Drive, west on Division Street, north on LaSalle Drive, north on Clark Street, north on Sheffield Avenue, west on Addison Street followed by a lap around Wrigley. All fans are invited to view the procession.
