If you thought the night of the Eagles’ first Super Bowl win was nuts, just wait for the big victory parade, which will take place on Thursday, February 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The main details are officially out for the Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl victory parade, which will potentially draw millions of people to Philly’s streets to cheer on the team as the Birds bring the Lombardi Trophy home for the first time ever.
Mayor Jim Kenney said Tuesday morning, “We do anticipate tremendous crowds, potentially topping the number that turned out for Phillies World Series parade in 2008.”
So yes, it may very well be the biggest celebration Philly has ever experienced in its long, long history.
That said, one of the easiest ways to keep up to date about all things parade-related is to sign up for the city’s text alert system. If you text ReadyEagles to 888-777, the city will send free text alerts throughout the day with information on transit, weather, public safety, and more.
Here’s everything you need to know about Wednesday’s parade so far, from the time and place to street closures to getting to and from (or just around) the route.
