Campeones! Campeones! Oe, oe, oe! Campeones! Campeones! Oe, oe, oe! Real Madrid came to Cibeles around 7:30 pm local time Thursday evening to celebrate their 32 La Liga title.

Although it was raining at Cibeles on and off throughout the afternoon, friends and families came out to show their support for los blancos. The rain stopped when the team arrived at Cibeles, with the sun shining through to greet this record-breaking Real Madrid side.

The atmosphere was absolutely wild. While last night's celebrations were characterized by passion and raw emotion, there was a more festive and party atmosphere for this official event.

Here are the best pictures of the day, and a few videos of the celebrations after the Madrid bus left. I've posted the pictures in chronological order, which hopefully create a more accurate picture of what happened step-by-step at Cibeles.
