The Lake Erie Monsters made some history when they swept the Calder Cup finals 4-0 against Hershey and hoisted the trophy. It's a championship (but doesn't qualify to break Cleveland's draught, of course), and it's time to celebrate.

Today the Monsters are capping the feat with a championship party at Gateway Plaza (between The Q and Progressive Field) at 6 p.m. You should be there.

The team defeated the Hershey Bears in overtime Saturday in front of a sellout crowd (19,665) at the Q. It was the second largest crowd in the Calder Cups 80-year history.

The party is free and open to the public, and includes live music, food trucks and drinks, and appearances from players and coaches.
