Fans explode into cheers in the Power and Light District.

Car horns blared throughout downtown Sunday night as fans celebrated the Kansas City Chiefs' stunning comeback over the San Francisco 49ers to win Super Bowl LIV.

“We’re so happy and so grateful," said Logan Lund, a student at The University of Saint Mary in Leavenworth, Kan.

"There’s no city in the world that will celebrate the Super Bowl win like Kansas City," he continued. "Kansas City will be on cloud nine for the next year. It’s been a long time coming for this city and I’m so glad to be here and witness this whole thing.”

Fan Ricardo Nevarez praised the team for their strength and resiliance.

“We didn’t give up," said Nevarez between cheers. "We didn’t give up. It’s incredible. Our city is already growing so fast as it is. With us loving on the Kansas City Chiefs and them loving us by supporting and winning for our city, it’s going to be so beautiful. It is a blessing what occurred today.”
