Reporter: Today, history was made. Among the smiles and the cheers, the team spirit, and the ticker tape, the U.S. Women's champion soccer team honored with a parade right through the big apple. Ending at city hall with an electric rally. I can't discount how important you guys were, the fans, bringing home this world cup for us. Reporter: And it was those little faces, waving flags, smiling in the crowd. Usa! Reporter: -- That shined bright everywhere we looked. Raise your hand if you play soccer. Reporter: In the 129-year history of New York City ticker tape parades, never before has a women's team been honored. That's something the team don't take lightly. This so-called canyon of heroes is an honor reserved for our nation's heroes. Astronaut John Glenn. Soldiers returning from world war ii. Our country's presidents. In fact, the last time a ticker tape parade was held solely for a female achievement was in 1960, for gold medal figure skater Carol Heiss. And 55 years later, team usa is proudly taking their victory lap. This will go down as one of, if not the best thing I have ever been a part of in my entire life. Reporter: Paula Faris, ABC news, New York.
