Super Bowl Revelers Celebrate Around Seattle

Thousands of Seahawks fans in Seattle took to the streets to celebrate the team's first Super Bowl win Sunday night.

While the celebrations were largely peaceful, fans in the University District near Greek row used furniture to start bonfires. The Seattle Times reported one arrest in the area.

Just blocks from CenturyLink Field, people waving "12th Man" flags flooded the Occidental Park in Pioneer Square. Excited fans climbed trees and sculptures while others got on top of a Pergola, breaking glass.

Crowds blocked traffic in some neighborhoods, including downtown Seattle, where a line of cars stretched for blocks as people cheered.
