Scores of fans lined Southeast Broadway in Portland Tuesday afternoon for a parade celebrating the Timbers' big championship win over the weekend.

The parade began at Broadway and Stark and made its way down Broadway, past Pioneer Square.

All along the way, fans cheered on the team, decked out in green and gold.

One man said he's been a fan of the team since its minor league days and is thrilled to see the Timbers win a major league title.

"If there's anything that can make this city better, it's an MLS Cup, and we got it. So I'm just so proud," said Doug from Newberg.

The team was also planning a rally at Providence Park Tuesday evening. It will be open to the public and is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Gates open at 5 p.m.

FOX 12 will broadcast the celebration live on television and online.
