U.S. Women Soccer Parade

(Manhattan) The confetti flew once again in New York City Friday as the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team was honored for winning the World Cup championship with a traditional New York ticker-tape parade up the Canyon of Heroes in Lower Manhattan.

It was the first ticker-tape parade celebrating an entire women’s athletic team.

The parade stepped off at 11 a.m., taking the traditional route up lower Broadway to City Hall, where a special ceremony was held.

The team was joined on the lead float by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Hundreds of thousands of soccer fans lined the parade route – many of whom wire red, white and blue and chanted “USA, USA, USA!”
