Valley fans turn out to welcome the champion Cavs


It was the biggest party Cleveland has ever thrown, and the valley's Cavs fans arrived during the early morning hours to get inside,

They waited in long lines that wrapped around the Mall C venue.

"I dont' think you could ever prepare for this. This is a life long dream. I cried when we won. We left about 2:30 and we got here about four," said Jen Zavada of Boardman.

The Cavs Rally was a grand finale for a whirlwind week of celebrations among happy fans.

From a free concert to jumbo tron views of the parade and the final seconds when the Cavaliers clinched the title.

Christo Wallace of Youngstown was excited. "First championship in 52 years. We know nothing but losing. And it's finally over and it's just exciting,"

Some stayed in town to avoid the traffic. Holly Naples of Howland planned ahead so she could get a glimpse of the 2016 champs.

"Our brother in law actually lives in an apartment downtown. So we stayed down here tonight. He lives in Brooklyn, so we stayed down here. So it's pretty exciting," said Naples.

Valley team sponsor, Phantom Fireworks is a part of this moment . CEO and President Bruce Zoldan appeared on one of the many parade floats that filtered into the last stop.
