A Super Bowl win means one thing: A Super Bowl PARADE (okay, that’s not all it means, but it’s definitely a perk). And Eagles won’t want to miss it. After beating the New England Patriots in a 41-33 victory, the team celebrated their very first Super Bowl win. Details about the 2018 Super Bowl parade are expected to be released at a press conference today, February 5th, but here’s what we know so far.
According to NBC 10, located in Philadelphia, the parade is expected to hit multiple neighborhoods throughout the city. They’re predicting that the parade will end around the notable Rocky statue, which is located right outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It’s rumored to start in South Philadelphia.
Another thing we know is that Bud Light will be present at the event. Representatives will be located at Philadelphia bars and taverns to provide a free beer to fans of legal age.
It seems like the city of brotherly love is hard at work with the rest of the details. Soon after the Eagles won, the official Twitter account for Philadelphia — which has kept up-to-date with everything residents need to know after such a monumental win — noted that they were proud of the team and that more information about the big day would be made available soon.
Meanwhile, Metro USA has predicted that the parade will be happening this Thursday, February 8th starting at 11 a.m ET. They’ve also reported that it was initially going to take place on Wednesday, but they decided on Thursday based on the weather forecast.
Of course, this is just a rumor until the official announcement is made.
No matter what, we have a feeling the 2018 Super Bowl parade is going to be well-attended. Congrats, Eagles fans!
