The Cavs' championship banner has been raised

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Cavaliers won an NBA title earlier this year, defeating the Golden State Warriors in seven games.

It ended the city's major sport championship drought of more than 50 years.

On Tuesday, the championship banner was lifted into the rafters of The Q.

Across the street, the Indians prepared to face off against the Cubs in Game 1 of the World Series.

What a day for Cleveland, Ohio.
