Hundreds of thousands of fans lined the streets of Kansas City on Wednesday to welcome home the Chiefs and celebrate their amazing win in Super Bowl LVII.
Early estimates placed the crowd at 800,000 – 1 million. Early hopes for warm weather were quickly dashed by a cold front, but the cool and cloudy day wasn’t enough to keep fans away. Prime spots to see the Chiefs went quickly, with fans claiming their places along the parade route before the sun came up. The party on the streets began long before the team arrived.
As the team rolled through fans did anything to get a chance to see them — including standing on porta potties.
Another risk I wouldn’t take.

Massive clouds of confetti proved to make life difficult for local news.

All-in-all it was a day nobody in Kansas City will forget. They might not need to wait long before there’s another parade either, because the Chiefs are going to be a problem in the NFL for a long time.
