The Chiefs winning the Superbowl was amazing. It brought us together as a city to watch the game. And it’s going to bring us together again in record numbers on Wednesday, February 5th. The victory parade is expecting over a million people in red and gold to show up and cheer on our beloved team. (That’s basically half of the entire city.) And it’s likely going to be snowing. So give yourself plenty of time to get there and get home… it’s likely going to be an all-day affair.
The parade will begin at 11:30 a.m. at Sixth Street and head south on Grand Boulevard through downtown and past the Sprint Center. The procession will then head west on Pershing Road and end at Union Station. The Chiefs will hold a victory rally at Union Station in downtown Kansas City at roughly 1:30 p.m. (Click here for more info about the parade.)
Winning Moves the Needle for Kansas City
Even if you’re not a big sports fan, you’re probably happy the Chiefs won the Superbowl. It’s good for our city in so many ways. It draws investor attention. People might consider living and working here even more seriously. Companies continue to relocate to Kansas City and now we can say we have two championship sports teams. (A new airport will help too.)
And How About the Commercials?
We love watching the Superbowl commercials every year. One of our favorites was the Jeep Groundhog commercial. It was extra funny because of another video that has been making the rounds in our office. It’s about a groundhog treating a garden like a buffet. And the funniest part is that this groundhog named Chunk likes to look at the motion detection camera the owner installed to see what was eating up the garden. It’s definitely worth three minutes to watch this video!
