The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks Sunday night to win their first Stanley Cup since 2009, and the fourth in team history. Citizens of Pittsburgh, obviously thrilled by the victory, came out in droves for the team's celebratory parade on Wednesday.

Officials estimate that the number of people lining the streets reached 400,000, which is impressive considering the city itself is home to just over 300,000.

Joining the players on their trip through downtown Pittsburgh were the Prince of Wales Trophy awarded to the Eastern Conference champions, the Conn Smythe trophy awarded to Sidney Crosby as postseason Most Valuable Player and, of course, the Stanley Cup.

Click through the slideshow above to see scenes from the Penguins' well-deserved victory parade through the streets of their thrilled city.
