Super celebration! Denver honors Broncos with parade, rally

DENVER — The Denver Broncos will board fire trucks and roll slowly through the crowd-lined streets of the Mile High City to celebrate winning the Super Bowl.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected for Tuesday's parade and rally (begins at 1 p.m. CT) after the Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50.

Officials won't give specific turnout predictions, but the last time Denver won the Super Bowl, the downtown party drew an estimated 375,000 people. A year before that, when the Broncos won the Super Bowl for the first time, about 650,000 people showed up.

Tuesday's celebration started with a concert in front of the City-County Building overlooking Civic Center park. The parade steps off at 1 p.m. near Union Station, arriving at the park around 2 p.m. for the rally.
