Fans March with Ravens' Parade to Packed Stadium
BALTIMORE (AP)--Thousands of Baltimore Ravens fans are cheering, singing, dancing and marching along with the team in a parade to celebrate the team's Super Bowl victory.

After a ceremony at City Hall, the parade rolled past the Inner Harbor. Players rode on a float and in flat-bed trucks and Humvees. Retiring linebacker Ray Lewis had a position of honor at the end of the procession, flanked by a mounted police unit and officers on foot.

The parade headed to the Ravens' stadium, where a packed crowd is awaiting a party.

Police say the stadium has reached capacity and, as of 12:30 p.m., was no longer open to arriving fans. A police spokesman suggests fans who are not yet inside go home or to a restaurant to watch on television.
