DENVER -- It's finally here -- Super Bowl Weekend.

Many fans will be watching the Broncos take on the Carolina Panthers from home or a sports bar. But lucky fans who were able to snag tickets are heading to the San Francisco Bay Area on Friday.

And when you hop on the train to get to a terminal, you are greeted by Mayor Michael Hancock.

“Welcome to Denver, home of the AFC champion Denver Broncos This is Mayor Michael Hancock and I’d like to invite everyone here in Broncos Country to be united in orange as we head to Super Bowl 50. Go Broncos," the mayor says.

The entire airport has Broncos fever. The flight boards are orange and blue. There are signs that say "Broncos Country." Even the statues are showing their Broncos pride.

All of Jeppesen Terminal is decked out in Broncos-themed decor. Several passengers are expected to go through the airport on Friday heading to California.

More than 1 million people are expected to be in San Francisco this weekend. JetBlue and Southwest Airlines added extra flights to San Francisco International Airport from Denver on Friday to get fans there. Extra flights were also added for the return on Monday.

Airport staff will be giving out free stuff through Sunday -- all orange, of course. Included will be Orange Crush soda, orange, orange candy and beads.

Officials also have a Puppy Bowl set to take place at 10 a.m. The pups will be available for adoption.
