Chicago Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts will serve as honorary marshal for Saturday's Bud Billiken Parade.

Rickets says he's honored. The team says this is the first time someone from the Cubs has been the honorary parade marshal.

The Bud Billiken Parade was first held in 1929 to get children excited and ready to go back to school. If you can't make it to the parade you can watch it live on ABC7. Our coverage begins Saturday morning at 10.
