BOSTON (WPRI) — Confetti filled the fall air in Boston Wednesday morning as Red Sox fans celebrated their team’s World Series championship.
Thousands, perhaps millions of people lined the streets for the city’s fourth rolling rally in the past 14 years – and that’s only counting the Red Sox. In all, the duck boats have hit the streets for a victory parade 11 times since 2002 when you factor in the Patriots, Bruins and Celtics.
On Sunday, the Red Sox capped off a historic 119-win season by defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5.
The team arrived home to a hero’s welcome at Fenway Park Monday night after flying in from Southern California.
