Mayor Jim Kenney called on fans to celebrate with passion and pride, again referring to those who committed violence and vandalism late Sunday as "knuckleheads". After losing quarterback Carson Wentz with a torn ACL in December, the Eagles had to turn to backup Nick Foles.

Philadelphia Eagles fan and fashion designer Nancy Volpe Beringer places a small dressmaker's form with an outfit she says she made and would like to give Eagles' Nick Foles daughter, Lily, on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Wednesday Feb. 7, 2018, in Philadelphia. But Thursday morning brought the main event: The Eagles Parade. "We are after all the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection".

Fans began thronging the parade route at dawn.

That moment I surprised @HaroldRKuntz3 on air that his beloved @Eagles finally won the #SuperBowl. Congrats man! #FlyEaglesFly, Kuntz's colleague Scott Pfeil wrote on Twitter

All 50,000 special parade day tickets for the regional railroad lines were sold out as of 1 p.m., said Andrew Busch, a spokesman for Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority.

The parade has also touched off a bit of a beer war. PATCO suggested an alternative: Walking across the almost 2-mile-long (3-kilometer-long) Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Center Jason Kelce was in full Mummers regalia, faintly resembling an Aladdin costume in a nod to Philadelphia's raucous annual parade on New Year's Day.
