OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — It's been a day 50 years in the making. The Kansas City Chiefs along with thousands of their fans packed downtown Kansas City to celebrate with a championship parade. Hundreds of miles away, fans in Omaha gathered to watch the celebration unfold as well.

"We've just dreamed of this forever," said local fan Monty Hoyle. Fans went to Pat and Mike's Bar & Grill in Omaha to watch. The event was shown on KMTV. "You never know when this is going to happen ever again so you got to sit back and take it all in," said Tom Garvey of Pat and Mike's.

Other fans are still soaking everything in. "When you're a fan, you know, you go 2 and 14 and you just never make it, and finally you get over the hump, it's a great feeling," said local Chiefs fan Curtis Covos.

Equipped with special, Chiefs related beer, it's also been a day the bar has been looking forward to for years. "It's pretty surreal to be able to look around at what's going on not just at our little bar here, but that city down there those fans, that team, it's so deserving," said Garvey.

Fans hope this is the start of a few more parades in Kansas City. They also are still looking to celebrating the parade for days to come. "You never know when it's going to happen again, I could die tomorrow but I can go to heaven then, because I experienced it," said Hoyle.

If you missed out on the parade we will re-air it at 10:35 pm Saturday night, on KMTV.
