BOSTON - The city of Boston is scrambling to clear snow from the parade route for Wednesday's Super Bowl rolling rally for the Patriots. Mayor Marty Walsh is facing some criticism for his decision to hold the rally right after a big storm, but fans we spoke to are ready.
"I've been a fan for 24 years and I've never been able to go to the parade but now I can and I am," a fan from Connecticut said.
Boston has seen more than 40 inches of snow in less than a week. Residents and the city have been digging out since last Tuesday. Despite some criticism Mayor Walsh says the parade can't be pushed back any further, and some fans agree.
"We'll be ready for tomorrow's parade for sure. Tomorrow's the day, tomorrows the day," one fan said.
Pats fan Chet Harding was lucky enough to be at the Super Bowl, he was surprised the snow didn't stop his flight home.
"In true New England fashion, they did the flight anyway and we made it was great. And so I'm going to be there for the parade tomorrow," Harding said.
Because of all of the snow banks along the parade route, the Mayor is asking people refrain from sitting or standing on them for safety reasons, and to bundle up for the cold.
Boston has not hosted a Super Bowl parade in 10 years. In 2005, more than one million people lined the streets of Boston.
