New Yorkers love a parade, and these festivities have been around for longer than we can recall. but these women athletes of Team #USA 🇺🇸 earned it and deserve their special day in The Big Apple.

At City Hall, Mayor Bill de Blasio called it The Canyon of Heroines while presenting Team USA with a proclamation, a medal, a scroll, or a key to the city. They are the champions.

NYC holds a ticker-tape parade to celebrate the United States women’s national soccer team’s victory in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The USWNT defeated the Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday afternoon to win its fourth World Cup title.

A parade is a procession of people, usually organized along a street, often in costume, and often accompanied by marching bands, floats or sometimes large balloons. Parades are held for a wide range of reasons but are special celebrations.

All along Broadway, from the Battery to City Hall, hundreds of thousands of spectators will crowd the sidewalks and look down from skyscraper windows. They will be cheering, shouting and tossing confetti in a shower that will become a blizzard of shredded paper falling on the motorcade below. Flags, marching bands, and music herald this special procession.
