How to watch the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl parade and ceremony

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The Philadelphia Eagles are ready to celebrate their historic Super Bowl win with their fans -- and neighbors -- on Thursday.

An estimated 2 million people are expected to cheer the champs on as they make their way through the city on parade busses.

It's a day Eagles fans have always "dreamed of," Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said in a statement online.


"We know you have waited years, some for decades, for the chance to crown your Birds as champs," Kenney wrote in a note to fans. "I urge everyone to celebrate in a way that is safe and respectful to everyone from neighbors to strangers."

Celebrations got a little too rowdy Sunday night, as fans flooded Philadelphia streets after the Eagles beat the New England Patriots, 41-33.

Boisterous fans were caught on camera smashing store windows, climbing light poles, flipping over cars and setting off fireworks.

Kenney hopes to avoid a similar situation on Thursday.

"Go forth and celebrate, but do so in a way that will make Philadelphia shine," Kenney advised.

Here's what you need to know if you plan to celebrate the Eagles' big victory on Thursday.

What time is the parade?

The parade officially kicks off at 11 a.m. ET, starting at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue. The route will lead the players north, as they make their way toward their final destination: the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

"The celebration will have 14 jumbotrons placed along the route with amplified sound, and the ceremony will host ASL translators on stage during the speaking portions of the program," according to a guide from the City of Philadelphia.

What's the exact parade route?

The parade will start at Broad Street and Pattison avenue and work its way north. Attendees can expect to catch the action from City Hall, Benjamin Franklin Parkway and, of course, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the last stop.

What about the ceremony?

A formal celebration will take place in front of the art museum around 1 p.m. ET. Details haven't been released, but Fred Stein, the executive producer for The Creative Group, a special events production firm, told The Philadelphia Inquirer to expect a good time.

“It will be dramatic. It will be wonderful. It will be fantastic," he told the local newspaper.

How can I watch?

If you don't want to brave the crowds to catch the parade in person, don't worry: you can watch the parade from the comfort of your home (or office, we won't tell).

Bud Light's Super Bowl promise: Free beer

Beer will be flowing along the route of the Super Bowl victory parade.

Bud Light confirmed on Twitter Sunday that — yes — they will, in fact, honor their promise to hand out free beer to fans in Philly since the Eagles “emerged victorious."

“Join us with @LaneJohnson65 and your 21+ friends at taverns along the parade route to raise one of the Kingdom’s favorite light lagers,” the company tweeted.

The company made the vow to Philadelphians back in August, after Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson promised he’d be supplying “beer to everybody” in the event that the Eagles won Super Bowl LII. Bud Light then stepped in to pick up the tab, and the company has been reminded of its commitment ever since.
