World Cup parade: Photos from the celebration for the U.S. women's soccer team

One ton of recycled confetti flew through the air in lower Manhattan Wednesday morning as the U.S. women's national soccer team celebrated their World Cup victory in true New York City fashion.

There was more than enough pomp and circumstance to go around as thousands of soccer fans gathered along the Canyon of Heroes, which spans Broadway from the Battery up to City Hall, for the ticker-tape parade that stepped off around 9:30 a.m. Mayor Bill de Blasio also presented the team members with keys to the city in a post-parade ceremony.

The U.S women's soccer team bested The Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday to win their fourth World Cup.

Whether you missed the middle-of-the-workweek parade or simply want to relive the revelry, here's a recap of the event, in photos.
