Over 800,000 people attended the parade according to the local Fox News station. And a lot of the people in the parade were South students.
The parade was a huge success as it was the largest gathering all time in the state of Missouri.
A lot of South students thought the parade was amazing.
“I felt like Kansas City came together. It was cool to see all of the fans supporting the players,” said Nick Ruffini. “The players were all lined up in their own trucks and were waving to everyone on their way by. And then Ned Yost came at the end with the trophy and the street went crazy.”
At the parade, people were lined up along the street as much as 20 rows of people deep according to Bret Vanice, sophomore.
“The players were all lined up in their own trucks and were waving to everyone on their way by. And then Ned Yost came at the end with the trophy and the street went crazy.”
But there were some complaints from Royals fans at South.
Engle said, “I wish there had been lanes for people to walk through to get around because sometimes the streets were so packed that you couldn’t go through them. And of course there was a lot of traffic but that was expected.”
Ruffini said, “Since it was so crowded I could barely see anything.”
But in the end they felt it was definitely worth it.
“I’m so glad we won and I’m so glad I went,” Engle said.
