For those of you who don’t know, the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl this year! Super Bowl LIII took place in Atlanta, where the Patriots took on the LA Rams. The game ended in the fourth with Patriots leading 13-3. My friends and I were at a friends watching the game where we then headed back into the city to rally for the win. The parade took place in Boston on Tuesday February 5th, at 11am all throughout downtown. We went to City Hall, where the parade typically ends, to watch. We’ve done that for the past two years now, but luckily, the weather at this years parade was hitting sixty degrees.
My friends and I took pictures to document where we were, and to be able to post on Instagram later. When the parade started, everyone was cheering, and screaming for the players going by on the duck boats. Tom Brady, Edelman, Defensive players, Robert Kraft, and of course Belichick. Everyone was on separate duck boats, even the cheerleaders and mascot. Confetti filled the air and the sun shining down made the city feel warm. Everyone high fiving each other and screaming “Beat LA” and more chants.
I definitely can say I’m heartbroken I didn’t see Gronk once again, from being on the opposite side of his float, but I saw pictures and videos from friends. When the parade ended, we all ran to the ending to see if we could see or meet the players. None of us met them, but I did see Gronk in his bus sitting down rocking his Super Bowl Champion sunglasses. I was fangirling because he saw me in my Gronk jersey screaming with joy.
It’s always a good time seeing the Patriots team come home to Boston, and celebrating with their fans and family in the parade. It’s also bittersweet when it ends because you have to leave that happy place. I know there will be more parades with the duck boats and what not, but until then let me just say one more final thing, “Super Bowl Champions baby!!!”
