The ceremony kicked off at 5:30 p.m. in the American Tobacco Historic District.
Durham Mayor Bill Bell presented the team with a proclamation. Duke Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski and several players spoke at the event.
The party then moved across the street into the Durham Bulls game where team seniors John Scheyer, Lance Thomas and Brian Zoubek threw out the first pitches.
Afterwards, fans were able to pose for pictures with the national championship trophy. Duke has won four national championships since 1991.
