17 amazing shots from the Women’s World Cup Ticker-Tape Parade


1/18
IMG_0820 For a few hours on Friday, July 10, it appeared to be snowing in lower Manhattan.

New York City was celebrating the U.S. women’s national soccer team’s incredible World Cup victory with a ticker-tape parade, a historic tradition dating back to 1886, where businesses along the route throw shredded paper from windows to honor the (in this case) athletes.

The parade was a huge occasion since the city has only allowed them for local teams (the Yankees and the Giants) since 1999, and has never hosted one for a women’s team.

People of all ages came to celebrate and congratulate the inspiring women, and the coolest part? You could spot lots of elated young girls with their soccer teammates decked out in the players’ jerseys or rocking t-shirts declaring they’re proud to “Play like a Girl.” Now that’s something to celebrate.

We headed into the crowd to bring you these 17 amazing, must-see shots.—Lisa Elaine Held
