Having four parades in eight years hasn’t gotten any less exciting for the Golden State Warriors and their fans.

Before sunrise, Warriors fans were already lining up along Market Street in San Francisco to claim their spots for the NBA championship parade.

The route started at Market and Main and extended down to 8th Street, and people were stacked a dozen deep trying to catch a glimpse of their favorite players.

Players were placed high on buses, but many jumped down during the course of the parade to interact with fans one-on-one.
