They came from all over by the tens of thousands to show love to the 2022 national champion Kansas Jayhawks.

On a perfect spring day in downtown Lawrence, tons of red-and-blue-clad KU fans packed Massachusetts Street to send off the champs in style with a championship parade that covered 13 blocks and every joyous emotion you can imagine.

Lined up as much as 10 deep on both sides, fans packed Lawrence's main celebration spot from 6th Street to 19th Street, screaming and cheering as their favorite players and coaches rolled by.

Some held up trophies and tossed out T-Shirts. Others smiled and waved, soaking up the love. Some hopped out of the cars they were in to say hey, sign an autograph or give a high-five. In all, a fleet of 48 cars drove the Jayhawks down Mass. Street in style.

Here's a look back at some of the fun from inside the barricades.
