In celebration of the Houston Astros’ second World Series victory, HISD schools will be closed so that students and families can attend the parade.
This Sunday, Houston Independent School Districts made the announcement in an email to faculty and parents:
“Our Houston Astros won the 2022 World Series! It’s been an incredible season, and we want to celebrate our national champions,” the HISD email read. “All HISD schools and offices will be closed Monday, Nov. 7, to allow our students, staff, and families to attend the victory parade. We are proud to have the Houston Astros organization as a partner in education and in our schools. Let’s show our support for the home team. Go Astros!”

Mayor Sylvester Turner is scheduled to make a press conference this afternoon, 2 pm, to officially announce the parade details. According to the Houston Chronicle, the parade will start early as 11 am.
Back in 2017, the parade saw an attendance of one million fervent Astros fans. Highlights from the parade include a fire engine packed with players, championship trophy in tow, the flight of four military aircraft, and 20+ blocks of excitement.
