Milwaukee Bucks’ fans celebrate NBA championship with parade
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Thousands of fans have lined downtown Milwaukee streets to catch a glimpse of their beloved Bucks in a parade to celebrate the city’s first NBA championship in half a century.
Six police officers on horseback clopped past cheering fans at the head of a procession Thursday that included a hook-and-ladder fire truck, occasionally blaring its horn, and open-air buses and flatbed trucks carrying Bucks stars occasionally hoisting the trophy they captured Tuesday night with a Game 6 victory over Phoenix.
Police estimate 100,000 people jammed the Deer District, outside Fiserv Forum, on Tuesday night.
