ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (NBC 26) -- Tens of thousands of fans watched the Bucks win an NBA championship at the Deer District in Milwaukee.
And more watched in bars and restaurants across the state.

- Bucks Championship parade will be Thursday
"Bucks in six," patrons screamed at one local watch party.
It's a rally cry fans across Northeast Wisconsin spoke into existence.
"It’s a culmination of everything I’ve ever dreamed of," Oneida resident Alex Walters said.
For the first time in 50 years, the Bucks secured an NBA title, and fans aren’t just celebrating in the Cream City.
"I started crying," Walters said. "I have like a 20-second video of me crying inside the bar earlier. It’s absolutely incredible."
Walters was one of hundreds attending the Stadium View watch party in Ashwaubenon when his dream turned into reality.
"I’ve got Bucks in six tattooed on the back of my leg," he said. "I love this team so much. It means so much to us to finally have a championship."
"It’s incredible," Green Bay native Nick Chapman said. "It hasn’t set in yet. I’m sure later this week or at the parade in a couple days, it’ll finally feel real... Wisconsin hasn’t had a championship since the 2010, 2011 season when the Packers won it. So it’s been a lot of heartbreak in between."
But for Bucks fans across the state, that heartbreak has turned into bliss.
"It’s not just about the Packers, Brewers and Badgers," Walters said. "It’s all four sports now... if I don’t see another [Bucks title] for the rest of my life, I’m happy. At least I got to see one."
