Super Bowl victory parade in Baltimore

Report by Sarah Johnston, Video by Sarah Johnston

Thousands of cheering Ravens fans have jammed the streets of Baltimore for the Super Bowl victory parade.

The players and their coaches were driven through the city to the team's home at M&T Bank Stadium.

Head coach John Harbaugh and Super Bowl's most valuable player Joe Flacco were perched on top of national guard vehicles as other team members rode other traditional floats.

Many of the Ravens fans, like Baltimore native Joe Levy, were excited that the entire city could come together in celebration of the Super Bowl victory.

"You see all these people out here, people all over the city, everybody gets along, it is just really great." Levy said.

The celebration finished off with an hour long rally at the stadium. Several of the players delivered brief remarks to the crowd, including linebacker Ray Lewis.

"The only way on my last ride to repay Baltimore back for all the things that you ever did for me and all the support you ever give to me was bring back the Lombardi Trophy to Baltimore one more time.

"I love you Baltimore. Baltimore, forever my city. I love you," Lewis said to a roaring crowd.

The Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 in New Orleans on Sunday.
