Hundreds of Broncos fans turned out for a rally kicking off a week-long celebration leading up to the Broncos' Super Bowl game against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday.
The rally was held on the same day the team flew to New Jersey where the game will be held next Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
Some fans who showed up at the rally outside the Denver City and County building, received orange pom poms, and chalk.
About 2,000 of the pom-poms were distributed at the rally which was organized by the office of Mayor Michael Hancock,
Fans used the chalk to decorate the sidewalk with messages to the team.
"Eat some Seattle Seahawks for lunch," said one. "One more win," said another.
Ambrose Moreno, 36, brought his 7-month-old son, Miles, to the event.
Moreno said he was disappointed last year, when the Baltimore Ravens ended the Broncos' march to the Super Bowl in the play-offs.
"I came down to support the Broncos in this championship game ," he said, promising that this year they will win Super Bowl XLVIII.
Mayor Michael Hancock and Gov. John Hickenlooper appeared at the rally.
Beginning Monday, fans will be encouraged to post photos and videos on the mayor's Facebook page, based on a different Broncos theme each day.
Several buildings across the city also will be lit in blue and orange before the Broncos play the Seahawks next Sunday.
