Caps And Fans Party Down Constitution!!

Photos by Brittney Marcum

It’s a PARTY as only the Stanley Cup Champions Washington Capitals could throw!!


Fans began arriving early. Some headed into DC for work and planned to sneak out to celebrate.

Many took the subway down with tons of other fans! (Thanks Wendy Hockey for the pics!)

Some drove!

And everyone ROCKED THE RED in a way that this town has never seen and wasn’t sure we ever would see! You partied on the sidewalks, in the grass, and even from windows and the rooftops!

The Caps came down Constitution Avenue, like other dignitaries do in this nation’s capital. Click here for more photos of players on the buses. Enjoy our photo gallery slideshow.

They hung a right and moved onto the mall for the rally where OshBabe said what we all wanted to hear: # BACKTOBACK #BACKTOBACK !!!!!

There were so many great moments that we have to do a few dozen more posts to get our team’s photos and stories out to you. We especially loved that the Capitals made it a point to include local talent in the parade – including the talent behind the scenes that keep the organization flowing. And then there were the long-time original fans who never gave up and who have hung in there for a day like this day! There are so many special people who were in the parade that we will have to do another post to salute them! (click to enjoy the slideshow)

Mostly it was all about you the fans. Thanks for sharing your stories and letting us take your pictures. More of that to come soon!

Congrats to everyone!
