SAN FRANCISCO – Hundreds of thousands of San Francisco Giants fans crowded a downtown parade route Wednesday to honor the 2010 World Series championship baseball team in an old-fashioned ticker-tape parade.

A citywide celebration that has been 53 years in the making is unfolding throughout San Francisco and across Northern California Monday night on the heels of a spectacular World Series Championship by the San Francisco Giants ball club.
