PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - The City of Philadelphia will hold its Eagles Super Bowl Parade Thursday, according to Mayor Kenney.
The city wanted to hold the parade Wednesday, but appears likely to push to Thursday due to inclement weather.
The parade will tentatively start at 11 a.m. at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, heading north to the Art Museum.
City officials are expected to release further details Tuesday at 9 a.m.
"For so many who have called themselves Eagles fans for a generation, this is the day, the game, the season, and the team we've dreamed of. The 2017-18 Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl Champions, and they've brought tremendous joy to hundreds of thousands throughout the City and region,” Kenney said Sunday.
"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. I urge everyone to celebrate in a way that is safe and respectful to everyone from neighbors to strangers. Go forth and celebrate, but do so in a way that will make Philadelphia shine."
