Thousands turn out for Boston parade to celebrate Patriots Super Bowl win
BOSTON - Patriots fans had to wait one more day to welcome the Patriots back home and have a victory parade for their Super Bowl win on Sunday.
It finally took place on Wednesday with a loud crowd watching. Confetti fell and cheers echoed throughout the city. Fans were up early lining the streets.
"I got up at 5. I got on the C&J bus in Portsmouth, New Hampshire at 6," said Patriots fan Kathy Bonaccorsi.
Ten years after their last victory parade, fans basked in the glow of the Patriots being crowned Super Bowl champs after Sunday's thrilling win.
"The minute Malcolm Butler intercepted that pass I was like 'I'm going down to the parade,'" said Andrew Clarke.
Butler, Brady and Julian Edelman were among the fan favorites Wednesday, Brady clutching the Vince Lombardi trophy and smiling while Edelman whipped the crowd into a frenzy by dancing.
"The effort is beyond describable and you know that's just something that I want for my own life to just never give up. It's not over 'til it's over!" Bonaccorsi said.
So what's next for the Patriots? The offseason. What's next for the city of Boston? Pitchers and catchers for the Red Sox report in a couple of weeks.
