KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The upcoming Chiefs Kingdom Champions Parade in celebration of Kansas City's Super Bowl LIV victory on Sunday in Miami will be the city’s biggest party since 2015, according to Kansas City, Missouri, Chief of Police Rick Smith.

Smith said that the law enforcement outfits from across the Kansas City area will dedicate resources to “assist us that day.”

“There will be hundreds upon hundreds of officers along the parade route and at the celebration at Union Station afterward to ensure everyone has a great time while staying safe,” Smith wrote in his blog.

He said the city expects “hundreds of thousands of people to descend” on a small area in downtown Kansas City, and those attending also should anticipate traffic delays and “huge crowds.”
