Kansas City saw hundreds of thousands of revelers converge downtown Wednesday to celebrate the Chiefs' Super Bowl victory. A parade and rally took place despite a winter storm hitting the area. 

Mayor Quinton Lucas urged fans to "bundle up" as forecasts said up to 3 inches of snow could fall.

"This is a celebration that is a long time in the making," he said Tuesday at a news conference. Law enforcement officials said 19 surrounding agencies helped provide security at the event.

The Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday for the team's first championship in 50 years. The comeback victory was fueled by Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who was named the Super Bowl MVP.

"We never lost faith, that's the biggest thing. Everybody on this team, no one had their head down and we believed in each other — that's what we preached all year long," Mahomes said in his post-game interview.

Head coach Andy Reid thanked fans for their support and promised there would be more to celebrate in the future.

"Next year, we're coming right back here," Reid said to the crowd gathered outside Kansas City's Union Station. "One more time baby, one more time."
