Hundreds of thousands of notoriously loud Seahawks fans cranked up the volume on Wednesday, cheering, chanting and going berserk during a parade to celebrate the first Super Bowl victory in the history of the franchise.

The parade featuring the NFL champions began near the Space Needle and slowly made its way to CenturyLink Field, the home of the team. Police estimated about 700,000 people – more than the population of the city – attended what might have been the largest gathering in Seattle history.
