Market Street before the parade.
We waited fifty two years for this World Series win and it did not disappoint. I have lived in San Francisco all my life and seen many parades including the SF 49er Super Bowl parades in the 80's, yet I have never experienced anything like this. It was sheer jubilation, pride and one big party in the streets. There was an estimated crowd of a half million people though it felt like much more. To be a part of this was so memorable and exciting! Below is a link to my album of photographs for the day with more pics and video below. Enjoy!
The World Series Trophy
The entire parade route was decorated with these balloons.
There was ten thousand pounds of orange, black and white confetti being dropped from atop high rises along Montgomery Street.
There were fans atop buildings and high rises trying to get a glimpse of their heroes.
Since I took video of Tim Lincecum I had to get a snapshot of the video below in order to have a still picture.
This is a short/short clip of Tim Lincecum going by on the Cable Car. Unless you were right in the front row, it was virtually impossible to get good photos and video. We were about 25 deep so when I heard he was coming through, I turned the video on, raised the camera and hoped for the best. At least I got 4 seconds of him :)
Each player rode in their own motorized cable car along with their entourage.
