Superior, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) -- The big game has come and gone and Packer fans are beside themselves with joy.

Earlier this evening, Dave Anderson stopped by a few parties to see how Cheeseheads were celebrating.

He found two types of celebration; one just for fun and one that sought to educate.

"Listen to these people! These are the greatest fans in the world!"

The Super Bowl is a national holiday a fan has only a one in thirty two chance of celebrating every year.

The Packers Nation has waited since 1998 for this chance to celebrate and the fans at the EZ Saloon just outside of Superior made the most of the occasion.

"This is America's team right here! Green Bay Packers."

The big game party at the EZ Saloon was similar to thousands of other such gatherings around Wisconsin.

Wisconsin treats like beer were responsibly consumed.

Down the road at UWS, the gathering was dry but not dusty.

Fans there took in the game with soft drinks toasting their life long love of the Pack.

"Oh yes, I've been a Packer fan since I could walk."

This was a party with a purpose as the main objective was to teach young people to avoid drinking and driving.

"If you are above the age, make sure you have a cab or a sober driver. We're trying to keep kids away from drinking."

To hammer the point home, campus police brought their beer goggles and obstacle course to simulate driving under the influence.

"It was really bad and blurry. I'm really dizzy. It was hard. I was all over the place."

Officer Joe Eickman then told the tricycle riders what they would face if they we're really caught driving under the influence.

"With blood alcohol of .08, your first one is a $250 fine and license will be suspended six to nine months."

Back at the EZ, the crowd was boisterous but law abiding and extremely excited when the Packers took their fourth Super Bowl title.

"The title is in Lambeau where it belongs!"
