After a big year, you need to have a big parade.

Ryan O'Reilly won the Conn Smythe Trophy while leading the St. Louis Blues to the Stanley Cup in his first season with the team. He also won the Selke Trophy after leading the team in points and assists.

So on Thursday it was time to celebrate.

In his hometown of Seaforth, Ontatio, O'Reilly was celebrated in a big way.

O'Reilly sat on top of a fire truck with the Cup.

He posed for plenty of pictures with fans young and old and the local fire department.

There were plenty of familiar faces around as well. O'Reilly's 99-year-old grandmother had a big hug for him.

The forward also made a pit stop at his old school, St. Anne's in Clinton, Ontario.
