If he wasn't a Crosby fan for life, he is now. But this year's parade will continue into Point State Park, where the players, coaches and other dignitaries will take the stage to deliver remarks. Lisa Wolfhope, 45, and her daughter, Katie, 15, left their home in Johnstown at 5:30 beat the crowd.

Weather for the parade seems to indicate scattered thunderstorms and hot and humid temperatures, so plan accordingly.
