BOSTON, Mass. (WPRI) — After winning their fourth Super Bowl Sunday night, the New England Patriots will hold their celebration parade this week.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said the event, which was initially scheduled for Tuesday, will instead be held on Wednesday morning due to the weather conditions.

Mayor Walsh said crews will continue to clear the roads and sidewalks of snow so fans can enjoy the parade, but added that no rally will be held at the end.
Many fans questioned the decision to hold the parade so soon, rather than wait until the weekend.
“It’s because a lot of the players leave Boston, leave New England to go vacation with their families. It’s no longer a work day for them,” Walsh responded. “So they’re going to be doing the rally for us tomorrow and a lot of them will be getting out of town after that and enjoying the victory with their family probably in warmer places.”
If you’re planning to attend the parade, be sure to bundle up because it will be extremely cold.
