Super Bowl 2024 parade: Kansas City toasts Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the Chiefs’ third title in five seasons with 1million fans expected as temps hit 60 a month after team played in -4 conditions

There are no Taylor Swift sightings to speak of, but downtown Kansas City has been turned into a sea of red for Valentine’s Day as Chiefs fans celebrate their third Super Bowl title in five seasons with a parade.

‘It never gets old,’ Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas posted on X as he prepared to join Wednesday’s festivities to mark the Chiefs’ come-from-behind, 25-22 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers.

In a nod to the double holiday (parade + Valentine’s Day), Patrick Mahomes’ wife Brittany posted a picture of the rose her Super Bowl MVP husband got for her, writing: ‘He didn’t forget.’ And she wasn’t alone. Travis Kelce’ mother, Donna, was seen handing out roses to many of the attendees.

Key on the minds of many fans is whether Swift would join her boyfriend Kelce for the parade and victory speeches. Swift has not commented, and isn’t expected to be aboard one of the double-decker buses. She has a show in Melbourne, Australia, on Friday night, the first of three scheduled concerts on her Eras Tour. Still, that remote possibility, combined with unseasonably warm temperatures in the 60s Fahrenheit (15-20 Celsius), are expected to generate a crowd that city officials estimate could top 1 million. In fact, several players were seen shirtless amid the rising excitement on the street, including soon-to-be free agent linebacker Willie Gay.

Running back Isiah Pacheco got the biggest reaction by bringing a pet goat to in a Mahomes jersey to the parade – a subtle way of calling his quarterback the ‘Greatest Of All Time.’
