After the U.S. women's national team earned a historic fourth Women's World Cup title, fans from all across the nation celebrated the victory with a parade in New York City on Wednesday. 

The U.S. secured the title with a 2-0 win over the Netherlands on Sunday in Lyon, France, as Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle scored the last two goals of the tournament. Sunday's win gave the U.S. back-to-back wins, and a fourth championship — which is two more than the next closest nation.

The parade began with a ceremony at City Hall in NYC.
