The City of Philadelphia will be celebrating the 2018 Super Bowl champions: the Philadelphia Eagles with a parade that will kick off at Lincoln Financial Field at approx. 11 a.m. and will travel up Broad Street to the Art Museum concluding around 3 p.m.

In advance of the parade multiple road closures will go into effect at 6 p.m. Wednesday.  Please prepare for significant commuter and public transportation delays all day Thursday as the city is anticipating 2 – 3 million people along the parade route to cheer on our Philadelphia Eagles!

It is recommended that residents, employers/employees and visitors sign up for free parade text alerts.  Notifications will provide up-to-date public transportation, public safety and road closure information.  Register by texting “ReadyEagles” to 888-777.
