The parade started, and apparently the Eagles players promptly got off the bus to mingle. Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman, too.
Lots of Coors Light and Miller Lite on this “Philly, Philly” beer tree. Looks like Bud Light’s marketing campaign is bigger than the brand.

Looking good, Comcast II.
The biggest early throngs were gathered outside the Art Museum steps and along the Ben Franklin Parkway.
