The World Series champion Houston Astros will be honored with a parade through downtown on Friday, local media reported on Thursday.

"It's a true privilege to proudly host this magnificent salute to our hometown team that has earned history," Houston mayor Sylvester Turner was quoted by ESPN as saying on Thursday.

"As we bounce back from Hurricane Harvey, we are more than ready to welcome our heroes home in proper form."

The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 of the 2017 World Series on Wednesday night, winning their first World Series title in franchise history.

The parade will begin at the corner of Smith and Lamar Streets and make a loop downtown.

According to ESPN, players with the World Series trophy, management, team owner Jim Crane and Astros mascot Orbitare are expected to be there.
