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 Garcetti urged 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.

It's been a rough 2020, but this victory marks two very big, very welcome wins for the people of L.A. in the last two months.

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

There were also confrontations between crowds and police.

Officials declared a tactical alert, and declared unlawful assembly, and began dispersing crowds with less than lethal projections in downtown L.A.

Brian Feinzimer was on the scene to capture the evening:
