(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) Hundreds of Kansas City Chiefs fans from St. Joseph packed five buses to Wednesday's parade and rally celebrating the football team's Super Bowl victory.

Several fans in one of the buses were excited about the day's events. 

"It's gonna be the biggest party in the world," Melisa Turner a Chief's fan said.  

"We get to see Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes," James Kindred a Chief's fan said.  "We get to see them all."

Bus driver John Rock also got in the spirit while on the bus, he along with fans on board were quick to point out his striking resemblance to Chief's head coach Andy Reid. 

"I was runner up in the Andy Reid look-alike contest, " Rock said. 

Once the buses arrived in downtown Kansas City, a sea of red made up of chiefs fans had already flooded Liberty Memorial park, Union Station, and Grand Ave., the main corridor for the parade route. 

Chiefs fans from far and wide all across chiefs kingdom and beyond braved the bitter cold temperatures to celebrate something many of them thought they’d never see in their lifetimes, a Super Bowl win for the ages.

"This is once in a lifetime, this is history," Renner Grub, Chief's fan said. 

"It’s just a moment to remember all around," Turner said. 

Fans said they hope it won’t be fifty more years until the next trip to the Super Bowl for the Chiefs, the memories made at this celebration are sure to last with fans for far longer than a half-century.

"I never really thought we would see a Super Bowl win," Elizabeth Bunzee, Chief's fan said. "Hopefully, we have more to come."

Heartland Trailways provided the transportation to and from the parade, an estimated 300 chiefs fans total packed the five buses.

The forecast for today will be very similar to yesterday, but just a couple degrees warmer although we are still staying relatively cool for this time in August. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
