An estimated 800,000 fans came out to celebrate at a Kansas City Royals World Series parade after the team's win this week. The next day, the Kansas City Star's cover displayed this unbelievable photo of the crowd from above.

In the stunning aerial photo, Kansas City appears to be covered in a sea of blue, the Kansas City Royals' team color. The Royals beat the New York Mets in its first World Series victory since 1985. Fans started showing up to the city's center hours before the celebratory event started, and were packed in so tightly that many people were barely able to move in the midst of the crowd. After the win, the triumphant World Series parade wound through the streets of Kansas City. The photographic evidence shows the overwhelming joy of an entire city of sports fans.
