In an absolutely explosive Super Bowl game, the Philadelphia Eagles came out on top and conquered the New England Patriots with a final score of 41-33 last night. Immediately following the win, Eagles fans flooded the streets to celebrate the NFL team’s first ever Super Bowl win.
Broad Street and Center City were filled with die-hard rambunctious fans who were beyond excited to see the city win a championship. In a united celebration, people laughed, hugged, cried, and yelled chants of “Fly Eagles Fly” as they filled the streets and marched down to City Hall.
Being in the midst of this celebration was an extraordinary experience and to see the city in such high spirits was an amazing sight to see. There was so much going on last night – cars honked all night to recognize fans and the win, people climbed buildings and poles, and fireworks filled the sky.
Check out some highlights of Sunday night’s celebration below.
