Chicago Cubs fans are turning their attention to the World Series for the first time in 71 years.

Large crowds of people hit the streets outside Wrigley Field on Saturday night after the Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 6 of the NL Championship Series and advanced to the World Series for the first time since 1945.

A majority of the fans celebrated peacefully, with many taking selfies in front of the stadium. Police say one person was arrested after climbing a traffic pole.

Longtime fan Brian Dusza was at the game. He says he never thought he'd see such a win, adding: ''I can't even describe what I'm feeling.''
