Today’s victory parade for the 2010 World Series champions attracted lots of Alamedans and other Bay Area residents, who got to the event by ferry, BART and other means to cheer for their favorite players.
When the parade ended, Alamedans didn’t have very long lines or long waits to get back to the Island by ferry.
Giants fans needing to get home on the Golden Gate Ferry, though, had to cope with much bigger crowds at the San Francisco Ferry Building.
Some of the Marin-bound crowd decided to take a break from the long ferry lines and relax by the statue of the Indian leader and peacemaker Mahatma Gandhi.
And, everyone returning home to the Island and other parts of the East Bay shared stories about their experiences during the parade, with some taking the opportunity to take a final photo or two.
And though parade goers weren’t quite as energetic leaving the Alameda-Oakland Ferry as they’d been when boarding it several hours earlier, most were very glad they participated in the big celebration.
