Running four processions in eight years has been no less exciting for the Golden State Warriors and their fans.

Before sunrise, Warriors fans were already lining up along Market Street in San Francisco to claim their spots for the NBA Championship Parade.

The track began at Market and Main and extended to 8th Street, people crammed deep into dozens trying to catch a glimpse of their favorite players.

Players were placed high on the buses, but many of them jumped during the show to interact with the fans one-on-one.
