When the Argentina national football team landed in Buenos Aires on Tuesday after winning the World Cup, millions of Argentines flocked to greet the players. The government declared their homecoming a National Day, and the team began a 50-mile victory parade through the capital.

The team toured the city in an open-topped bus, flanked by security guards, and the players were seen banging drums and sipping viajeros, a local drink that combines Coca-Cola with Fernet, an Italian spirit drunk from a cut-off plastic bottle will. So many people came to greet the team around the Obelisk, a memorial downtown, that the caravan had to change course at the last minute for safety reasons.

Celebrations have continued since Argentina won their third World Cup title on Sunday. On Victory Night, more than a million people flocked to Avenida 9 de Julio in the heart of the capital, singing songs, honking their horns and setting off fireworks.

Here are scenes from what may be the largest open-air party in Buenos Aires history.

Trophy in hand, Lionel Messi led his team off the plane at Ezeiza International Airport, where they were greeted by a huge crowd of fans.

The team’s bus drove from the airport to the Argentina Football Association’s training center in Ezeiza, in the province of Buenos Aires.

Fans big and small sang in the streets before, during and after watching the players’ bus drive by.

Lionel Messi, Rodrigo de Paul, Leandro Paredes, Lautaro Martínez and Julián Álvarez were among the players who sang from the open-top bus that took them to the training center.

Fans cheered from the base to the top of the iconic Buenos Aires Obelisk.

The team’s official parade began in earnest Tuesday as the players, once again in buses, traveled a 50-mile route through the city.
