Yesterday, an estimate 40,000 people came into town to celebrate the 2017 Alabama football team. When you throw in the students and locals at various hangout spots, the crowd was dense everywhere throughout the parade route. It was truly a celebration and a party more than a mere parade.
Here are some things we saw yesterday worth the watch:
Incredible turnout by @AlabamaFTBL fans today for the @CFBPlayoff National Championship Celebration in Tuscaloosa. We believe over 40K turned out for the celebration. #RollTide pic.twitter.com/7myZdyIxJF— Greg Byrne (@Greg_Byrne) January 21, 2018
Greg takes a pretty mean photo, doesn’t he?

Andrew Kent and Lauren Borek drove from Grand Rapids, Michigan to watch the Crimson Tide parade in Tuscaloosa. It was Borek’s first time in Alabama. pic.twitter.com/OCvW6jXOsm— Drew Taylor (@MrDrew_Taylor) January 20, 2018
