Patriots Parade Feb. 7, 2017

The Patriots won Super Bowl LI in one of the greatest comebacks in Super Bowl history. Tom Brady led the Patriots to an overtime win after trailing the Falcons 28-3.

Two days later, most of Boston shut down for a massive Patriots parade. Fans came from all over the state to celebrate the win and Tom Brady.

Some in the crowd passed around a bottle of fireball and by the time the parade passed Copley at around 11:30, the streets were filled with chants of "Brady Brady Brady".

Many school children skipped school to attend the parade, some accompanied by parents, others in throngs of their friends.

A Boston Strong flag waved over the expectant crowd and those without Patriots gear touted Bruins, Celtics and Red Sox merchandise instead.

The many fans seemed undeterred by freezing rain and snow falling on the parade, but some turned to unorthodox measures for the cold trip home.
