KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KFVS) - It was a big day in Kansas City.
The Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs held a downtown parade and rally.
Head Coach Andy Reid said on Tuesday he was ready for it.
“I know it’s going to be cold, but you got your juices going, everyone in the city, we’re talking over a million people, schools are closed, businesses are closed, let’s go man! Let’s enjoy it. It took us 50 years to get here, let’s go,” he said. “Let’s go and have a good time. Keep the city intact, let’s not ruin what we got, but let’s enjoy the heck out of it.”
The parade started at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, February 5.
Governor Mike Parson and First Lady Teresa Parson participated in the parade and rally in downtown Kansas City.
“It was truly an incredible experience to attend the Super Bowl and watch our Kansas City Chiefs bring the title back home to Missouri. The Chiefs Kingdom has waited for this day for 50 years, and Teresa and I were honored to be part of it – not just as Governor and First Lady of Missouri, but as longtime fans and season ticket holders,” Governor Parson said. “Throughout this season and three hard-fought playoff games, the Chiefs never gave up. They battled through adversity in true Show-Me spirit, and they have made us all proud. Congratulations to Super Bowl LIV Champions – our Kansas City Chiefs!”
In honor of the team’s victory, Governor Parson signed a proclamation commending the Chiefs on a successful season and their status as Super Bowl LIV Champions.
