2022 WNBA championship parade: Aces celebrate first major pro sports title for Las Vegas

The Las Vegas Aces earned the 2022 WNBA championship trophy, becoming the first major league sports team to bring a title to the city.

Forty-eight hours later, players, staff and fans celebrated accordingly. Gov. Steve Sisolak made it extra official by proclaiming Sept. 20 as Las Vegas Aces Day. 

Part of the strip was closed as three buses made the trip down Las Vegas Boulevard from Caesars Palace to the Bellagio fountains.

Originally, only one side of the street was supposed to be cleared, but the large crowd led officials to clear both South and North bound.

It was not a quiet evening, as requested by A'ja Wilson. At 8:14 a.m., the 2022 WNBA MVP was already asking about Four Lokos.

 This was not surprising, as Wilson is the same player that set strict requirements for those who wanted to attend the parade.
