South Jersey Eagles Fans Cross Bridge for Eagles Victory Parade

Pelicans adjust Thursday travel plans to Philadelphia due to Eagles championship parade

Follow live updates as Philadelphia throws a victory parade for the Super Bowl champion Eagles on Thursday.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie stood atop an open-air double-decker bus along with quarterbacks Nick Foles, Carson Wentz and third-stringer Nate Sudfeld as they made their way through the throngs. Jason Kelce, you will never have to buy a beer in town again.

Many of the Eagles players wore outlandish outfits, with a lot of them riding atop open-air double-decker buses in the parade, which started at 11 a.m. local time. Organizers are prepared for as many as 2 million people.

After a food fight broke out at a Philly convenience store after the Super Bowl win, two cops were on duty at the location ahead of Thursday's parade.

Philadelphia Eagles fan Will Gruccio, of Vineland, New Jersey, wears a jersey with his nickname on the back. All 50,000 special parade day tickets for the SEPTA regional railroad lines sold out. The city's two subways will be free all day, but fans coming in from the Pennsylvania suburbs might have a trickier time getting into the city.

Schools, museums, courts, government offices and the Philadelphia Zoo were shut down Thursday to allow the city to celebrate the event. The Erco company gave more than 100 employees in New Jersey and DE a paid day off so they can celebrate.


Kelce, the Eagles center who dressed as a Mummer for the parade, called out all the critics who slammed the players and coaching staff during the season. The team last won an National Football League title in 1960 - before the Super Bowl era.

Fans clad in Eagles green lined up 20-deep in spots to see the team despite freezing winds.

The parade ended at the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art for a victory rally with the team.

The championship parade Philadelphia has dreamed about and agonized over is finally here.

At the raucous, emotional parade, Kelce - who was dressed in a green matador jacket and a white sultan's hat with green stripes - addressed hundreds of thousands of partying fans who jammed the freezing streets leading to the city's famed "Rocky" steps, to revel in an National Football League title many thought would never come.
