The Blackhawks championship parade and rally last Friday cost the Chicago an estimated $200,000. But taxpayers won't pick up the tab.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the price tag is a result of city services and production costs but that will be paid for by corporate sponsorships.

Mayor Daley had promised that Chicago taxpayers would not pay a dime for the rally. And that's exactly what happened.

It's estimated that more than two million people joined in the celebration.
