Everything you should know about Chiefs Kingdom Champions Parade
By Matt Conner
Here’s everything we know about the Kansas City Chiefs’ plan to host a parade following their win in Super Bowl LVII over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Who would have thought that parades would ever become a regular thing in Kansas City?
For five full decades, fans of the Kansas City Chiefs watched other franchises hoist the Lombardi Trophy and hold city-wide celebrations for their respective fan bases to join in the festivities and pay tribute to a championship season in the National Football League. After all, Chiefs Kingdom had only one such win to their name—back when Hank Stram was head coach and Len Dawson was quarterback in 1969.
Fast forward to the crowning of Patrick Mahomes as starting quarterback and the Chiefs are the NFL’s next great dynasty. They’ve been to three of the last four Super Bowls with two rings to show for their efforts. They’ve hosted five consecutive AFC Championships and owned their division for seven straight years. Andy Reid’s teams have made the playoffs in 9 of his 10 seasons in Kansas City.
