City celebrate title win with parade

Manchester, England - Manchester staged a Premier League trophy parade for the fourth straight year on Monday when Man City players celebrated the club's second title in three years with an open-top bus tour through packed city-center streets.

With incessant morning rain giving way to blue skies, tens of thousands of City fans turned out to honor the team a day after its 2-0 victory over West Ham clinched the league championship. City also won the League Cup in manager Manuel Pellegrini's first season in charge.
