Back in 1985, I was way too young to remember the celebration that accompanied the Royals’ World Series victory. (In case you must know, I was 2). It was a long time coming, but the Royals finally did it again! Winning in 5 short games (or long games, depending which one we’re talking about), against the New York Mets. Two days after their November 1st victory in New York, the team came back to Kansas City for a parade that will surely go down in history. From the last reports, they are saying 800,000 people crammed into a few square miles in downtown KC for the event. I was one of them. It was fun, at times frustrating, tiring, and exhilarating, watching that many people come together for a united and joyous cause. We never got close enough to see the actual parade sadly, even though if we would have stayed in our original spot next to Union Station, we probably could have seen the players very close! (hindsight…) There were several things we could have done differently I guess, but the important thing was we’re there, and we are HOPING to learn from the experience and return very soon! (We’re counting on you, guys).
I was able to take a few street photos of the crowds and people celebrating from where we stood at the Kansas City World Series Parade 2015!
