The Philadelphia Eagles have won their first Super Bowl in franchise history and are expected to pull out all the stops to celebrate, complete with a parade!
On the official Twitter of the city of Philadelphia, a parade had been announced on 10:26 PM, after the Eagles made their big win, saying that more details would be given the following Monday.
During an interview on SportsRadio WIP on Monday morning, city mayor Jim Kenney said that a parade would likely take place on Thursday, but the details have not been formalized. According to Philly Voice, he also shared the following:
“To the fans: I have long felt that our city’s professional and collegiate sports teams bring Philadelphians together, regardless of race, income, neighborhood or gender, and that was never more true than during the Eagles’ brilliant season.”
“We know you have waited years, some for decades, for the chance to crown your Birds as champs.”
On social media, Philadelphia Influencer’s Sean Brace said that Wednesday was more likely, also giving out more details about where the parade would likely take place.
The Philadelphia School district added that schools would be open the following Monday, though they may expect accommodations for the parade.
According to Darren Rovell of ESPN, anyone at least 21 years of age will get a free drink, with Ross Tucker of NBCSN saying he’d buy a drink for everyone in the city.
