If, however, driving is necessary, the City encourages drivers to park in off-street lots and garages along the Parkway, Broad Street, or near the stadium complex. The Philadelphia Parking Authority also has a list of garages online. If visitors must drive, they should contact individual parking facilities for rates and availability ahead of time.

There will be no enforcement of meter and time limit regulations on the day of the parade.  Safety violations such as parking too close to the corner, fire hydrants, blocking crosswalks, and double parking will be enforced.

There will be significant travel delays on roadways and street closures immediately before, during, and after the Eagles Parade.

      You have to leave common sense at home. Bring your vandalism clothes. Boots for all the drunken vomit that will be everywhere
      Lighters for setting fires and a hard hat for poles and lights being pulled down. This is called celebrating!

    So, here’s what I need to know: nothing. Because the NFL would not hold their paid employees accountable for trashy and irrelevant actions and, instead, knuckled under the pressure of “white privilege,” I could not care less about who won the Superbowl or any other aspect of this blighted entertainment. Billions of dollars in sales, merchandising, endorsement contracts, player contracts, water boys, cheerleaders, and the rest………………pfffffffft. Adios Idiotas

      FYI, the NFL doesn’t employ the players – individual teams do. Also, the CBA between the NFL and the Player’s Union specifically stated that players “should” stand for the National Anthem but are not required to. Basically, their hands were tied as they couldn’t force players to stand for the anthem. You can be sure that the next CBA will probably have a clause forcing them to stand or remain in the locker room for the anthem.
