The crowd lining Constitution Ave. layers deep erupted. And then erupted again. And again. And again.

That was the mood that carried the day, as Capitals fans celebrated the 2018 Stanley Cup Championship on Tuesday, D.C.'s first championship parade in 26 years.

A dream, it was not. The sea of red all throughout the District was as real as the hardware hoisted over Alex Ovechkin's head.

A few sights and sounds 106.7 The Fan collected along the parade route, for perpetuity... so you'll never forget how this day felt.
