BOSTON — Giddy New England Patriots fans lined the snowy streets of Boston for a parade celebrating the team’s fourth Super Bowl win.
The team rode through downtown in two dozen World War II-style amphibious vehicles that are staples of championship parades in Boston.
The parade comes after Boston was buried in more than 3 feet of snow that’s piled up in the past seven days — a record for the city. The city had initially planned the downtown parade for Tuesday, but Mayor Marty Walsh pushed it back because the city was still digging out from a Monday storm.
Walsh defended the city’s decision to hold the parade midweek rather than wait until the weekend, saying most players will be on vacation. – Associated Press
