PHOTOS | 200,000 Celebrate UConn Basketball Teams in Victory Parade
Sunday’s victory parade in Hartford drew more than 200,000 to the city to honor the University of Connecticut’s men’s and women’s basketball teams for winning their respective 2014 NCAA championships. Hartford police provided a “conservative” crowd estimate of more than 200,000 and said fans were respectful - not a single arrest was reported. Police said it was the largest crowd anyone can remember in Hartford.
The event was produced by the Hartford Business Improvement District, in collaboration with the City of Hartford and the State of Connecticut, and a number of civic and business organizations.
