After last year’s surprise upset in the finals, sweet, sweet victory is finally here. So many people turned out for the parade in Oakland that if they’re right, the numbers—estimated to top 1 million—may turn out to top the, erm, “crowd” at Trump’s inauguration. 

As the floats snaked from Broadway toward Lake Merritt, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf invited MC Hammer onto her snail car, and Riley let her dad have the spotlight for once. Oh, and Dray treated the early crowd to a little dance. We can't help it—we're excited, too! Here, in the slideshow above, are some of our favorite crowdsourced shots from 2017's banner day.
