DENVER (AP) — The city of Denver has toasted the Broncos Super Bowl victory with a parade and rally. A million fans -- according to an estimate from the mayor's office -- took part in the festivities as the Broncos celebrated their first NFL championship in 17 years.

Among the Broncos on hand were quarterback Peyton Manning, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller and coach Gary Kubiak.

Parade goers were packed about 20 or 30 people deep along the parade route with some watching from balconies and rooftops and a few climbed trees.

Manning avoided saying anything about whether he will return to play for another season at the rally after the parade.
