Blackhawks Rally 2013 Attendance: City Says Over 2 Million Attended Grant Park Rally (PHOTOS)

For many in Chicago, Friday was a Ferris Bueller's Day Off come true.

According to the city, over 2 million revelers turned out to Grant Park to take in the Stanley Cup victory rally Friday morning -- markedly more than the number of folks who took part in the 2010 celebration.

And the jubilant, occasionally expletive-laden mood was, naturally, not confined to Grant Park nor the parade route itself.

Photographer and friend of HuffPost Brent Knepper shared a series of shots he took around town Friday that perfectly capture the energy of a city in celebration.
