Philly Feting 1st Super Bowl Title With Parade

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The championship parade Philadelphia has dreamed about and agonized over is finally here.
  
The city's first Super Bowl parade steps off Thursday, capping a glorious week for jubilant fans celebrating an NFL title that had eluded them for nearly 60 years. Led by backup quarterback Nick Foles and second-year coach Doug Pederson, the Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41-33.
  
Schools, museums, courts, government offices and even the Philadelphia Zoo will be shut down.
  
Organizers say they're preparing for as many as 2 million people to jam the parade route.
