BALTIMORE (AP) - A crowd outside Baltimore's City Hall is cheering as the Baltimore Ravens set off on their Super Bowl championship parade.

Coach John Harbaugh addressed the gathering in War Memorial Plaza, thanking the public for their support and saying that the fans "are truly champions.'' He led the crowd in a call-and-response chant, saying, "What's our name?'' The fans screamed "Ravens!''

At Harbaugh's urging, safety Ed Reed sang a few lines of "Two Tickets to Paradise.''

Linebacker Ray Lewis said that "this is the Ravens' year, this is our time, and we brought home another crown.''

Confetti and streamers fell as players walked down from a City Hall balcony to parade vehicles.

The parade heads to the Inner Harbor and then M&T Bank Stadium.
