The U.S. lost to Belgium 2-1 and were eliminated from the World Cup yesterday, but the crowd gathered at Ah-Nab-Awen Park in Grand Rapids still had a good time.

It was a first-of-it's-kind soccer viewing party in Grand Rapids and there was a large turnout for the occasion.

The crowd included die-hard soccer fans, some new to the sport, and even patriotic dogs.

Hoping for a better finish next time around, but still a strong effort from the U.S. Men's Soccer Team at the 2014 World Cup.

Here are a few pictures shared via Twitter and Instagram by some in attendance.
