Eagles' Super Bowl parade rolls through Philly Thursday

Feb 7, 2018

Today’s the day the Eagles’ and their fans celebrate the Birds’ first-ever Super Bowl title together.

Philadelphia’s Super Bowl parade is expected to draw a million or more people to the city.

It gets underway at 11 a.m., starting in the stadium complex at Broad and Pattison Streets.

It will work its way up Broad Street to City Hall, then weave its way to Ben Franklin Parkway and finish at the Art Museum, where a rally is expected to get started at 1pm.

If you are heading to the parade from the First State, it may be difficult.

There are only four SEPTA regional rail line trains heading from Wilmington to Philly this morning.  They’ll run at 6:08, 7:06, 7:58, 8:54 and will only stop in Wilmington, Marcus Hook and Ridley Park.  And you will need to have already purchased a SEPTA day pass to ride.  Those passes sold out yesterday.

And those driving in face road closures around the parade route and competition for available parking.

But at least the weather will be good.  Sunny and 35 degrees,  but with a little wind it could feel about 10 degrees colder.
