Started from the bottom, now we’re here.
Monday was parade day for Toronto FC, as the city celebrated the team’s first-ever MLS Cup championship.
Aboard open-roof double-decker buses, the team and supporters paraded through the streets of downtown Toronto. The parade began at Maple Leaf Square, going up Bay Street to Nathan Phillips Square where a rally was held for the team.
“I think everybody that’s here should just not go back to work today,” said Toronto mayor John Tory to an excitable crowd.
After a number of people spoke to the crowd, the team capped off the celebration with a viking clap – just as they did after games at BMO Field.
Here’s a look at some of the best photos/videos on social media from people attending the parade:
