— A giant wave of supporters flooded the Madison square on Sunday afternoon, marching through the streets of the city and cheering the arrival of their local team, the Green Bay Packers.
The Green Bay fans began their march from the park and then marched through the city, singing and chanting.
Some carried the Packers flags and banners.
The Packers, with their recent move from Milwaukee, were coming off a 38-24 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
It was their first home game since January 14.
The fans cheered as the team returned to the field.
They were not the only ones to be excited.
A Wisconsin-based environmental group called the Madison Environmental Alliance announced a campaign called the Wisconsin Green Party to help bring a Green Party candidate to the Green Party National Convention in Chicago this summer.
The group’s website features a photo of the crowd at the Green Square rally and promises to raise $1 million for the Wisconsin Party.
The crowd was a mix of young and old, many of whom were wearing green and gold T-shirts.
One man wore a Green Bay jersey and a Green Wisconsin cap.
