Thousands came out for the Panthers Pride Rally in Romare Bearden Park on Friday.

Panthers players, the mascot Sir Purr, the TopCats cheerleaders, the PurrCussion team, the Black & Blue crew and even the governor were all present at the rally.

"It's an enormous undertaking to put on an event of this scale, do it right and to make sure that we get our team ready to go off on the right foot," Charlotte Center City Partners Adam Rhew said.

Between 15-20,000 people were there to send the Panthers off to Super Bowl 50.
