Fireworks erupted all across Los Angeles on Tuesday night as the L.A. Dodgers brought home their first World Series win in over 30 years, beating out the Tampa Bay Rays during Game 6, 3-1.
This is the Dodgers' first World Series win since 1988, and their 7th overall.
Mayor Garcettiurged people to withhold from congregating, or hosting victory parties, but fan energy wouldn't be contained — and promptly spilled out onto the streets of Echo Park, downtown Los Angeles, and East L.A.

Folks celebrated hard. Car horns blared throughout the night declaring victory, and chants to the Dodgers filled the air.
