For the first time in the history of the franchise, the Philadelphia Eagles will have a parade to celebrate a Super Bowl championship. The event is set for Thursday morning in the “City of Brotherly Love.”

There are plenty of ways to watch the Eagles’ parade, which starts at 11 p.m. EST. ESPN2, NFL Network and local Philadelphia TV stations will broadcast the celebration. A live stream will be available online at and, as well as the team’s official Twitter and Facebook pages.

The parade starts on Broad Street, and the route will head northbound to S. Penn Square. After going down 15th Street to JFK Blvd, the parade turns onto 16th Street. The players will head onto the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to Eakins Oval, concluding at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

A ceremony on the museum’s steps will start at about 1 p.m. EST.

Thursday marks Philadelphia’s first championship parade in a decade. The Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2008 World Series, and it was reported that two million people came out for the event. The Eagles’ celebration is expected to draw at least as many fans.

If the celebrations in Philadelphia Sunday night following the Eagles’ victory were any indication, the parade should be an interesting scene. Fans climbed light poles and scaled the gates at City Hall, and there was a report of a gas station being looted.

Bud Light confirmed to ESPN Sunday that they would be giving away one free beer to fans at the parade that are at least 21 years old.

Before beating the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII, the Eagles had never won a Super Bowl. The team came up short against the Patriots in 2005 and against the Oakland Raiders in 1981. Philadelphia last won an NFL championship in the 1960 season, having watched their three division rivals win a total of 12 Super Bowls.

Philadelphia had an improbable Super Bowl run after starting quarterback Carson Wentz suffered a season-ending knee injury in December. Backup quarterback Nick Foles took over, and the Eagles were betting underdogs in all three playoff games. They prevented the Patriots from winning three Super Bowls in four years.
