Cavaliers fans take over Cleveland for parade

For the first time in over five decades, the city of Cleveland is having a parade to celebrate a professional sports championship. The Cleveland Cavaliers won its first NBA title after overcoming a 3-1 series deficit in the NBA Finals to defeat the Golden State Warriors.

For a few hours on Wednesday, the city shut down as Cavaliers fans from far and wide showed up to be a part of their historic celebration. It was truly an amazing sight to see.

This is certainly a great way for this team to be welcomed back to the city. The Cavaliers are finally at the top of the mountain and they now intend to stay there.
