Hope Solo, Carli Lloyd, Abby Wambach, and the rest of the US Women’s soccer team brought home the gold at the World Cup over Japan this weekend, making this an epic Fourth of July all across the country. Today New York City honored them with a ticker tape parade. Thousands of fans (including tons of hopefuls to be the next Mia Hamm) lined the streets of NYC to get a glimpse of the champs who donned their gold medals and held their trophy high.

This was Manhattan’s 205th ticker-tape march, and this year’s event was especially monumental, since it’s rarely done in honor of women.

Take it all in, ladies! You deserve it.
