Lakers Victory Celebration

Laker fans came to celebrate - 250,000 of them - on Wednesday when they attended the Lakers Victory Parade and Rally, a route that took the celebration from Staples Center (where the Lakers play) down to the L.A. Colosseum.

The double deck buses were really decorated colorfully.

Even the LAPD wanted souvenir photos.

An air view of the Colosseum. At the far end is the stage with the Laker floor. The floor was transported from Staples Center in 200-some pieces and set up for the rally. Pretty neat!

Wow, what a party! Love the photo of the LAPD taking photos!

We watched the playoff and were rooting for the LA. Hubby was a little disappointed that it wasn't more of a contest but the best team definitely won.

What a celebration! I watched some on TV yesterday.
