    The San Francisco Giants' World Series Championship parade in San Francisco on Wednesday cost the Giants $1 million. But that doesn't cover the cost of cleanup, transit, and police, which was the city's part of the bill.

    And that bill? Unknown, according to Mayor Ed Lee's office.
    The mayor's office is "stumped" as to how much the 2010 or 2012 championship parades cost in cleanup or security, according to the San Francisco Appeal online newspaper.
    Lee said that San Francisco expected to spend this year the same that was spent in 2010. That figure is unavailable.
    San Francisco police believe one million people lined Market Street and jammed Civic Center to see the Giants in person, according to the newspaper.
    Some numbers were ready at hand, however: A total of 22 people were arrested, and BART recorded 568,061 "exits," for its heaviest-day of ridership ever.
