The Philadelphia Eagles are holding their Super Bowl championship parade Thursday, after the team won its first Super Bowl last Sunday. To commemorate the Eagles' historic 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots, public and private schools across the city are taking the day off, and even the city's court offices have been given permission to play hooky. Bud Light is also offering a free beer to every drinking-age Eagles fan at the parade.

Millions of people are expected to endure the 30-degree weather to stake out the five-mile route as well as fight over its mere 850 Porta Potties. The parade began at 11 a.m. ET in South Philadelphia, just a few blocks from the Eagles' Lincoln Financial Field, and will march its way up Broad Street before snaking through the city toward the Philadelphia Art Museum. There, the festivities will end with a two-hour ceremony at the museum's historic steps, which is set to begin at 1 p.m. ET.

Longtime Eagles fan John Thompson, 56, told ESPN that he and his friends had long waited for this celebration: "We were wondering if we would ever see the Eagles win a Super Bowl in our lifetimes, and we may not ever see another one."
