There's no slowing down for the Fierce Five!

Team USA's group of Olympic gold medalist gymnasts – Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross, McKayla Maroney, Gabby Douglas and Jordyn Wieber – began making their way through New York City, where they partied with Jordin Sparks, but not before attending a lighting ceremony at the Empire State Building.

Following Tuesday's taping of The Today Show, the ladies, with moms in tow, took a bunch of photos at the lighting ceremony and seemed to be having a great time, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

"Everyone was asking McKayla about her little frown look that got all the online attention," the source says. "She kept getting asked to do it for people."



Following their busy morning, the girls, sans Douglas, got a chance to relax with new pal Sparks, whom they met on the set of Today.

The ladies joined the Sparkle star and her costars at the official afterparty for the film, presented by Alizé Coco, at the Yard at the Soho Grand Hotel.

"The girls were the hit of the party," a different source says. "Everyone wanted a picture of them!"
