PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Timbers Army clogged the streets of downtown Portland for a parade to celebrate the Timbers’ first MLS Cup victory over the weekend.
The parade was held Tuesday at noon on SW Broadway from Stark Street to Madison Avenue.
After the parade, a rally was held for the Timbers at Providence Park. Fans filled the stadium despite heavy rain in Portland.
Mayor Charlie Hales and his wife Nancy joined in on the fun, handing out roses to each player.
“Our city loves this team, they are your team,” Mayor Hales said. “But Timbers, this is your city. Portland is your city, we love you.”
Players and coaches took the stage to express their gratitude to their loyal fans.
Head coach Caleb Porter led the team into the stands to hoist the championship cup as the Timbers Army chanted along.
And it wouldn’t be a TImbers event if Timber Joey didn’t saw off one final slab of the Timbers log.
