MIAMI — As the Kansas City Chiefs held their last practice ahead of Super Bowl LIV, thousands of fans packed downtown Miami's Bayfront Park for a pep rally party.
"It’s a beautiful day to be in Chiefs Kingdom down in Miami," Steve Wilson said.
Voice of the Chiefs, Mitch Holthus, hosted the free event, which included special performances by the Rumble and Chiefs Cheerleaders.
Mary Carrier flew to Miami from Parkville. She has been waiting for the Chiefs to make a Super Bowl appearance for 50 years.
"I was here for the first Chiefs (Super Bowl win), believe it or not," she said. "We got our first colored TV, I’m proud to say and I’ve been a Chiefs fan forever."
Charlie Clenton said he's been waiting 50 years, too. He's 11-years-old.
"If I was in the locker room I would say, 'Go Patrick Mahomes! Go Kelce! We have the Cheetah, we have Travis Kelce, I would say let’s go Chiefs!' I would just let them go on the field and do their thing," he said.
