Thousands of Baltimore Raven fans gathered first at City Hall, then made their way to M&T Bank Stadium for a Super Bowl victory rally.
Baltimore celebrated with its Super Bowl champion Ravens on Tuesday, with thousands of fans in purple lining the streets of Charm City and packing the team's stadium for a celebration.
Fans filled the square in front of City Hall and cheered when the team arrived and when players held the silver Lombardi trophy aloft.
Coach John Harbaugh thanked the fans for their support, and safety Ed Reed sang the melody of Eddie Money's "Two Tickets to Paradise." Retiring middle linebacker Ray Lewis, the only current player to have started with the team when it came to the city from Cleveland in 1996, told fans the team had fulfilled a promise to go to New Orleans and win.
"The city of Baltimore — I love you for ever and ever and ever and ever," Lewis told fans in front of City Hall.
