The streets in Winnipeg were a total party after Blue Bombers won Grey Cup
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers won the Grey Cup and the city was overrun with celebrations — and rightfully so, as it's the team's first Grey Cup win in nearly 30 years.
Crowds took to the street with their blue-and-gold Bombers flags and jerseys, chanting, popping champagne and joyfully clogging intersections in Winnipeg's downtown core.
The Bombers beat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 33-12 at Calgary's McMahon Stadium, with running back Andrew Harris named both Most Outstanding Player and Most Outstanding Canadian, a first in CFL history.
The scene around Portage Avenue and Main Street looked comparable to the street party Toronto saw after the Raptors' NBA championship win in June, with fans generally living it up and having a blast celebrating the team's win together.
The Grey Cup parade will take place in Winnipeg tomorrow.
