Ticker-tape parades on this same route in NYC have been ongoing since 1886, often honoring politicians and New York championship teams. The parade, which cost the city $2 million, featured the players aboard different floats, which drove past thousands of screaming fans. Along the way, fans up in buildings covered the streets with confetti, as part of the historic tradition.
