One day after the 49ers won their season opener 20-16 against the Arizona Cardinals, the celebration continued throughout the streets of downtown San Francisco.
On Monday afternoon, trolleys filled with the Gold Rush Cheerleaders, Niner Noise and Sourdough Sam spent hours driving around the city connecting with 49ers fans.
Niner Noise, the club's drum line, provided the excitement while Sourdough Sam and the Gold Rush tossed thousands of mini footballs out to eager bystanders.
"There are so many 49ers fans out there that are excited and ready for our home opener against Seattle, and we want to reach out to as many as possible," 49ers Vice President of Marketing Michael Williams said. "We truly appreciate all the support that the 49ers Faithful give us, and this was a fun way for us to give something back."
The packed trolleys drove through the financial district, embarcadero, fisherman's wharf, marina and Union Square areas of the city while people on the streets cheered and those in their cars honked their horns in support of the team.
This event was one of many the 49ers have planned for the week leading up to their home opener. The 49ers will face the Seattle Seahawks at Candlestick Park this Sunday at 1:05 p.m.
Some of the other events coming up this week will include:
