The New York Giants celebrate their 2012 Super Bowl win with a ticker-tape parade in New York Tuesday. Thousands of sports fans have filled the streets to take part in the Parade of Champions. Marching bands play popular tunes and floats filled with Giants players pass through the streets, as Big Blue celebrates its Sunday win against the Tom Brady-led New England Patriots. 

The parade began at the southern tip of Manhattan in Battery Park and will end at City Hall. Quarterback Eli Manning and other team members will give speeches at the end of the parade procession. The team will also be given the keys to the city at the City Hall ceremony.

New York Giants' wide receiver Victor Cruz graced the first float that passed through the streets. He received cheers and praise from fans in the streets. Giants quarterback Eli Manning held the Vince Lombardi trophy and joined Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Cuomo and others on a float passing through confetti filled streets.
