The Tampa Bay Buccaneers celebrated their Super Bowl title in front of fans in a boat parade Wednesday on the Hillsborough River. 

There was plenty of enjoyment throughout the day, with Tom Brady even tossing the Lombardi Trophy between the boats:

When the trophy wasn't at risk, the players were seen dancing and partying on various boats throughout the parade:

So Brady not only brought his own new boat, he’s driving it. Power move. https://t.co/ivdFarMTr9

The players were ready to celebrate even before they left land:

Some Bucs also took a shot at Brady with shirts immortalizing the quarterback's famous picture from the NFL scouting combine in 2000:

While the boat parade kept the distance between the players and fans, there was no shortage of people watching along the river:

Bucs fans lined up along the riverwalk as Bucs boats move along. Biggest crowds at the start and finish. https://t.co/MnHRtD4blF

Not everyone had a great time as Scotty Miller apparently dropped Chris Godwin's phone in the river:

Chris Godwin on Mike Evans’ Instagram live: “my boy Scotty (Miller) dropped my phone in the water at the Super Bowl parade.” Evans calls Godwin one of the best WR in the #NFL. #Bucs #GoBucs #ChampaBay https://t.co/PuQeN2Cr1w

It otherwise appeared to be plenty of fun for all those involved.

The event comes three days after the Buccaneers earned a 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs for the franchise's first title in 19 years.

The city also held a boat parade for the Tampa Bay Lightning after their Stanley Cup title in September, allowing a safer atmosphere for those involved amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
