The World Series parade metro Atlanta’s been waiting a generation to host went down in historic fashion on Friday at high noon—beginning, fittingly, in the most historic part of the Braves’ home city.

Friendly crowds lined Peachtree Street in the autumn chill and saluted the improbable World Series victors in a procession that lasted about half an hour, featuring pearl-decked buses, pick-up trucks, military vehicles, and no shortage of Savannah’s famed trolleys.

We posted up in Woodruff Park, with Atlanta’s historic Flatiron Building as a backdrop, and captured enough photos to hopefully relay the spirit of this memorable day—and season—in the annals of Atlanta history.  Have a look in the gallery above.

Bravo to the Atlanta Braves. Let’s do it again next year.
